Weather News

Cold, wet and windy weather looms for eastern NSW

11:47 EST

Sunshine and spring warmth will be replaced by rain, snow and blustery wind in parts of NSW during the next two days.

The drought is now so severe it is biting in even the greenest corners of the country

10:38 EST

Farmers along Australia's normally green eastern coast are reeling from the worst drought they have ever seen and face a tough summer if it doesn't rain in the next few months.

Don't count on Sydney's sunshine to stick around

15:53 EST

It was an aptly named Sunday today, with temperatures reaching 28 degrees in the city, and hitting 30 degrees for western Sydney.   A very weak seabreeze and increasing cloud will keep the temperatures up overnight, with the eastern suburbs looking to only drop to 16-to-18 degrees overnight.  On Monday, it will be another warm one.
