Sydneysiders hopefully made the most of yesterday’s pleasantly crisp weather, since a series of cold fronts are set to deliver a cold and blustery week.
The first cold front was expected last night, turning the winds southwesterly and gusting up to 50 km/h. Winds will then ease during Tuesday before a stronger front arrives early Wednesday.
This front will be accompanied by a deep low pressure system that will whip up gale winds along the coast. This will create dangerous surf and seas, in addition to threatening the city with damaging wind gusts.
Although lengthy sunny periods are forecast there will be significant wind chill, leading to uncomfortably cold weather until late in the week. The coldest period will be between Wednesday and Thursday, with possible showers posing a challenge in the brolly-breaking winds.
