Sydney weather turns it on for a long weekend, but a cool change to come

This long weekend, NSW Health also urged people to stay home if they feel unwell and get tested if they have symptoms of COVID.

But the unusual heat will not last, with a possible southern buster currently expected to blow by late Monday afternoon.

“While it’s a hot day and a good day to say to go to the beach, you probably wouldn’t want to be at the beach… when that south comes,” Mr. Wilke said.

The south will bring cooler temperatures, with a forecast Tuesday to peak at 19 in the city, along with downpours and potential for storms, Wilke said.

“This change is happening and we are getting some showers, cooler temperatures Tuesday through Friday with the possibility of a few storms later in the week,” he said.

Smoky haze hung over parts of northern and central Sydney on Saturday morning after burns began in Ku-Ring-Gai and Narrabeen on Friday, but Mr Wilke said strong sea breezes are expected to clear the most of that smoke.

Further harm reduction burns were underway on Saturday in areas such as Woronora Heights, Blacktown and Penrith, and Mr Wilke said depending on the wind, smoke from those burns could pass through.

“If they burn a lot more today, they could produce smoke and so the places that are downwind will be affected,” he said.
