Sydney's weekend forecast: Beach with chance of a BBQ

Jamie-Louise Morrison, Friday February 7, 2014 - 20:36 EDT

After a gloomy week Sydneysiders would have been pleased to see the sun today and the good news is, it is set to continue into the weekend.

Yesterday, Sydney saw its coolest day of the month at just 23.3 degrees followed by a cool night. With temperatures dipping to 15 degrees overnight, many would have headed straight to their doonas.

Clear skies today allowed the mercury to slowly creep up, with the city reaching a maximum of 25 degrees.

Warming days are set to continue over the weekend as a slow moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea directs northerly winds across most of the state.

Saturday is expected to be sunny and warm with a maximum of 28 degrees in the city, and pushing into the mid 30s in some western suburbs. Sunday should be even warmer, with the mercury rising to 29 degrees in the city and the high 30's across the west. With ocean waters lingering around the 22 degree mark, many will choose the beach to cool down and honour the old Australian tradition of a barbie with mates.

On Sunday night a southerly change will arrive in the city, cooling down temperatures to the mid 20s for the start of the working week. While the change brings the chance of showers, these will be isolated and very light.

Have another glorious weekend!
