Gusty change cools Sydney

Rob Sharpe, Thursday November 22, 2012 - 10:22 EDT

Sydney is experiencing a cool day after a strong change hit the city overnight.

Wind became strong as a cool change swept through Sydney, waking many people up. Sydney Harbour had its strongest gust in exactly a month, reaching 78km/h at 2:30am. Further south, Wattamolla gusted to 98km/h.

Yesterday was the warmest day in almost a week, reaching 30 degrees in Richmond and 25 degrees in the city. The southerly change has brought a colder air mass and cloud meaning that today should only reach 24 degrees in Richmond and 21 degrees in the city. Thankfully for many the wind has dropped off considerably since last night and will remain moderate during the day.

Sydney will warm into the weekend with temperatures in the mid thirties in the western suburbs on Sunday and Monday, while the city will climb into the high twenties. This weekend will be a great opportunity to enjoy some warmth, particularly on Sunday when the sun will shine most of the day.
