Sydney Is Set to Cop Its First Heatwave of the Season This Friday

It's set to hit 37 degrees in the city.

The weather has been very newsworthy this year — and very unpredictable. We've been hit by devastating drought and had more than our fair share of heatwaves, including the second hottest day ever in January, a casual 40-degree day in March, and an unusually warm day in early September. And that was before we had a huge downpour in early October and Western Sydney got 70mm of rain in just own night. But it seems that Sydney's emerged from the October's wet, grey cloud and launched right back into scorching territory, as the city is set to get a minor heatwave this week.

Weatherzone reports that a pool of hot air is currently making its way down south and, when it reaches NSW, Victoria and South Australia over the weekend, it will raise the temperature considerably. Sydney is expected to maximum of 37 degrees on Friday, November 2, with areas around Penrith around the same. That's around 13 degrees over the average at this time of year.

The Bureau of Meteorology is even calling it a low-intensity heatwave.

For many, the hot temps signals the start of beach season — and the hot night will see a many a crew trot down to the beach for Friday after-work swims — but this heat in early November never bodes well for the rest of the season. Better buy that fan now, fam.
