IT’S the season we’ve all been waiting for — Sydneysiders will be treated to an early splash of summer next week with temperatures expected to soar to a whopping 37 degrees.
But weather forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology Sarah Chadwick said while it’s a nice taste of summer, a cool change will quickly follow to remind us it’s not quite summer yet.
“We often see a similar thing happen in spring, where we have bursts of warm and cool changes,” Ms Chadwick said.
Temperatures in Sydney’s CBD have been in the low twenties this week, but they are set to rise from 24 degrees today to 26 degrees on Thursday and 27 degrees on Friday.
On Thursday, Penrith and Richmond will soar to 29 degrees, and Campbelltown to 28 degrees.
By Tuesday next week, temperatures in the west could reach 37 degrees.
Ms Chadwick said the sudden spike in temperature is due to a high pressure system, which is moving in from outback Queensland.
“It looks like we’re expecting to see a change later on Tuesday evening, Wednesday will be a fair bit cooler and we will see temperatures drop,” she said.
She said there is a chance of a storm and showers on Tuesday evening, so Sydneysiders should lap up the sunshine while they can.
On the weekend, temperatures could reach 26 degrees on Saturday and 25 degrees on Sunday.
