Sydney's run of winter warmth coming to an end

Kim Westcott, Friday July 19, 2013 - 18:40 EST

Sydney has had a string of warm days and nights, but this is finally
coming to an end.

Last night was the warmest July night in four years, with the city
only cooling to 15 degrees. Under the sunshine that preceded the rain
this morning, the city saw it's fifth day above 20 degrees, which has
not occurred in July for 85 years.

It will be another mostly sunny day tomorrow but temperatures will
start to cool down as a cold front crosses during the day.

It should reach 18 degrees on Saturday, with the mercury sinking
quickly in the evening, before an even cooler day on Sunday with a
high of of 17 degrees. On Sunday particularly, the wind will create a
chill, making it feel 2-3 degrees colder than what it actually is.
This sudden change of temperatures will have Sydney residents rushing
for their slippers and jumpers.

Looking further ahead, temperatures will be pretty much normal for
July from Monday throughout the week, with chilly mornings and
maximums in the mid-to-high teens.
