This Weekend Could Be One of Sydney's Warmest Winter Weekends on Record

It's set to hit 25 degrees. In July.

Anyone who's been outside in the last few weeks will have noticed that Sydney's been unseasonably warm. On Sunday it hit 22 degrees and last night the low was just 14 — in the sun you don't even need a light jacket. Although this undeniably adds to our ever-present anxiety about global warming, it's hard to deny it: this winter has been delightful.

And you probably won't have to raid your house for your beanie anytime soon — well, not this week, anyway. Meteorologists have predicted that this winter weekend could be one of the warmest on record. According to Weatherzone, the temp is expected to hit 22 degrees on Saturday, July 29 before rising to 25 degrees on Sunday, July 30. The highest temperature on record for July is 25.9 degrees (back in 1990), so this weekend looks set to come pretty close, if not match it. It's going to be warmer still in northwestern NSW, with Bourke set to hit 28 degrees.

This is a bit of contrast to this time last year, when it got so cold it snowed in parts of Canberra and Melbourne. If you've got the weekend off, make the most of it — visit a secluded beach, do a coastal walk or do bevs at a beachside pub.
