Sydney's coldest weekend in almost a year

Ben Domensino, Wednesday June 19, 2013 - 16:01 EST

Sydneysiders should brace for a cold and wet weekend ahead, the coldest since last winter.

As a low pressure system over the Bight sweeps across southeastern Australia from Friday, cloud cover will gradually increase over the city. There will some showers around, however, these will remain
mainly coastal. Daytime temperatures will linger in the low teens for much of the weekend, with temperatures expected to hit just 16 degrees on both days.

If temperatures do stay below 16 degrees, this would be the coldest weekend for the city in almost a year. Back then, daytime temperatures failed to hit the 16 degree mark on the second
weekend in August 2012.

As the low pressure system deepens over the Tasman Sea later on Sunday, fresh southeasterly winds will bring heavy rain throughout the city on Sunday and Monday.

Looking ahead, the wild weather should gradually ease from Wednesday as winds drop and temperatures rise to the upper teens across the Sydney region.
