A chilly morning for Sydney

Thomas Hough, Sunday May 6, 2018 - 15:58 AEST

Sydney's Sunday morning early birds were greeted with a crisp start.

Sydney's CBD experienced its coldest night since September, with the mercury dropping to 10.4 degrees shortly after half past five on Sunday morning. This equals the previous coldest temperature on September 21st last year.

It follows on from Friday night when a number of locations in the Sydney basin also experienced their coldest night in 7-8 months, with Richmond dropping to 4 degrees, Bankstown 5.5 degrees, Canterbury 6.2 degrees, Penrith 6.4 degrees and Horsley Park 6.6 degrees.

Although it may have felt pretty chilly in the city this morning temperatures didn't come close the lowest on record for May, a rather cold 4.4 degrees in 1862. The long-term average for Sydney in terms of minimum temperatures for May in 11.2 degrees.

Looking ahead, mornings will be on the warmer side for this time of year, with the mercury remaining in the low-mid teens in the city, and only slightly cooler for western suburbs.
