Warming up for SydneyBen McBurney, Saturday October 13, 2012 - 13:59 EDT
After receiving a blast of winter cold that brought the heaviest snowfalls in years to the Blue Mountains, Sydney can look forward to warmer temperatures in the working week.
Today has seen a return to mostly clear skies to Sydney, after a wet and windy day yesterday. While the weekend will remain mild, with maximums hovering around 20 degrees, the working week will see temperatures begin to climb into the mid 20's.
On Monday the New South Wales capital is expected to climb to a maximum of 25 degrees, with western suburbs reaching into the high 20's. By Tuesday, the city should climb into the high 20's, with western suburbs creeping into the low 30's.
A cool change should bring a bit of a cooling from Wednesday, with the chance of some showers, although the mercury should still linger in the low 20's until Friday.
The usual pattern so far has been for the warmest days to occur during the middle of the working week this spring, before a cold front has brought temperatures down on the weekend. However, at this stage, this trend looks like finally coming to an end, with the warmth looking like lasting into the weekend.
