Autumn arrives belatedly in Sydney

16:55 EST

It appears autumn has finally arrived in Sydney after the city experienced a few showers and its second coolest day of the year.

Warm end to autumn may feel quite mild

13:21 EST

The latest seasonal outlooks issued by the Bureau of Meteorology on Thursday shows that days and nights are likely to be warmer than usual for most of Australia during May.

Was Sydney's smoky morning necessary?

13:24 EST

Smoke from hazard reduction burns caused 'very poor' air quality in Australia's largest capital city during this morning's peak hour commute.
