Very warm days before showers and storms in Sydney

Ben McBurney, Friday February 8, 2013 - 11:05 EDT

Sydney can expect some near-perfect weather over the coming days,
before showers and cooler conditions begin the working week.

The mercury should rise to 29 degrees today in the city, with the west
set to reach into the mid 30's. Skies should remain mostly clear all
day, making for a great opportunity to head down to the beach later or
fire up the barbecue. This will also provide perfect conditions for
the cricket match of Australia vs the West Indies, despite it being a
dead-rubber.

Tomorrow is set to warm to 30 degrees in the city, and again creep
into the mid 30's in the western suburbs. Mostly sunny skies should
prevail most of the day, before the risk of showers and storms in the
western suburbs from the late afternoon.

The last of the good weather looks like being on Sunday morning. For
beach lovers, the best conditions should be in the morning when it
should warm up quite rapidly to the high 20's. It will then cool quite
rapidly as a cool change pushes through in the mid-morning, bringing
cooler conditions and an increase in cloud. The cool change also
brings the risk of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and
evening.

In the wake of the cool change, temperatures will fall below average
with showery conditions from the beginning of the working week.
Onshore winds will maintain showers for most of the week, so an
umbrella may come in handy for the commute to and from work.
