Sydneysiders may be tempted to make the most of the minor easing of the COVID-19 lockdown rules to spend a lot more time outdoors over the next few days amid idyllic late-autumn weather.
The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting the mercury on Thursday will match Wednesday’s maximum of 24 degrees and then nudge higher to 27 on Friday and 26 on Saturday, ahead of a late, blustery cool change.
“It’s unusual to have these warm temperatures” so far into the year, Olenka Duma, a bureau forecaster, said. “Enjoy it while you can.” A typical May day in Sydney would see temperatures reach 19.5 degrees.
Overnight temperatures will also be on the mild side – even with the mostly clear skies – dropping only to lows of 16-17 on Friday and Saturday morning.
