Warming up for Sydney

Thomas Hough, Saturday October 27, 2018 - 17:29 AEDT

After a pretty dreary first two thirds of October, Sydney looks to end the month on a high, with heat gradually building into the end of spring.

If you've been in Sydney the last month you'll have noticed it has been quite a wet one. Monthly totals now stand at just over 164mm, over double the monthly average.

It's not been a particularly warm one either, with temperatures so far trending one degree below average for the month. Of the 27 days so far, only 11 have made it to or exceeded the monthly maximum average of 22.2 degrees.

From the beginning of the new working week heat will gradually build, peaking towards the end of the week ahead of a low pressure trough and cold front.

Should Sydney peak at 25 degrees or above for 3 consecutive days, it would be the first such spell of warmth since mid April.

Don't pack away the jumpers just yet, but it's looking like a great week to hit the beach after work or school.
