But before the rain starts, Victorians can enjoy a bit of sun with their turkey. Thanksgiving Monday will see a high of 14 C and a mix of sun and cloud.

Showers keep coming but the temperature stays consistent between Thursday and Friday, with highs of 12 C and 13 C expected respectively.

Much of the same can be expected Saturday, with a high of 13 C and a 60 per cent chance of rain.
