Heat returns for Sydney

Graeme Brittain, Saturday January 7, 2017 - 11:55 AEDT

Temperatures are on the rise again for parts of the Harbour City, with heatwave condition on the cards for the first part of next week.

A low intensity heatwave warning has been issued by the BoM from Sunday through until Wednesday for the Sydney Basin. The mercury is set to reach the mid-to-high thirties during the early part of the coming week.

On Monday and Wednesday afternoon, temperatures are forecast to reach 39 degrees in Penrith and 36 degree in Campbelltown. Coastal parts of the city look like escaping the worst of the heat on Monday and Tuesday, as a seabreeze should help to cool things down during the afternoon, but a late sea breeze on Wednesday could allow temperatures to exceed 35 degrees in the City.

Conditions are expected to cool down significantly by Thursday however, as a low pressure trough pushes through. The focus of the heat then shifts to northern parts of NSW, with severe heat wave conditions likely to affect the Northern Rivers, Mid-North Coast, Northwest Slopes & Plains and the Upper Western.

Remember to keep hydrated, and generously apply sunscreen - even when the sun is obscured by cloud.
