Sunny weekend for Sydney, but rain on the horizon

Graeme Brittain, Saturday July 8, 2017 - 09:37 EST

Pleasant sunny skies will dominate this weekend, before conditions deteriorate into next week.

It has felt more like early-spring across Sydney over the last few days, with a temperatures comfortably peaking in the low-twenties on both Tuesday and Wednesday - well above average for the time of year.

High pressure will continue to deliver plenty of blue skies and above average daytime temperatures this weekend, but this will be at the expense of a run of colder than average nights, with the mercury dripping to around seven degrees in the city and low single-digits for western suburbs.

From Tuesday, the high pressure system will preposition itself, which will result in onshore winds, cloud and showers across eastern parts of New South Wales. Currently Wednesday looks like being the wettest day of the week, with in excess of 15mm possible, with coastal adjacent suburbs particularly prone. Daytime temperatures between Tuesday and Thursday will max out close to average, whilst nights will become milder as a result of increased cloud.

Enjoy the spring-like weather this weekend.
