Monday’s rainfall relief for Sydney may mean little by Friday

Sydney is forecast to receive its wettest day in weeks and the state’s south-east will enjoy extra relief before hot and windy conditions return on Friday, meaning an end to the bushfire crisis is not yet in sight.

Up to 15 millimetres of rain is expected to fall on firegrounds in the state’s far south on Monday, accompanied by cooler temperatures that should slightly ease pressure on fire crews in the Bega Valley.

However, the Bureau of Meteorology said there was no significant rainfall expected for some time yet. Just one to five millimetres of rain is predicted for Sydney on Monday through to Tuesday morning, before the city and surrounds generally dries up again.

By the week’s end, high temperatures will return. Sydney’s Friday forecast maximum is 32 degrees and Penrith is expected to reach 40 degrees.
