OZ: Sydney enjoying toasty weekend

Sydney didn’t see the best summer and temperatures weren’t overly warm but this weekend the middle of April could bring a smile to city residents and tourists.

The NSW Capital will see a warm and sunny weekend, the warmest for April in eight years for some suburbs.

A high pressure ridge will bring mostly sunny skies across the Sydney Basin this weekend, allowing the sun to do what it does best and heat.

Penrith is forecast to reach a top of 28 degrees today and tomorrow, which has not happened during April since 2005.
Sea breezes will restrict heating slightly in eastern suburbs, although if the city reaches its forecast top of 26 degrees each day, this will be the warmest April weekend in two years.

The pool-worthy weekend comes at the end of a warm week and sunny week. Bankstown has climbed above average each day since Sunday 7th and Penrith reached 28 degrees for the first time this month on
Thursday 11th.
The sun has also shone for longer than usual, with the city bathing in more than 20 hours of sunshine during the past two days, more than double the long term average for this time of year.

Unfortunately, the warm and sunny weekend will not spill into the working week, with, cloud, showers and a cooler air mass on the way.

By Tuesday it will be wet, with cloud only allowing the temperature to reach around 23 degrees in the city and the west.
