Sweltering conditions in Sydney to linger well past sunset

Sydney will likely come close to notching its hottest day this late in the summer for 12 years – and there won’t be much early relief.

Thursday’s temperature was forecast to reach 38 degrees in the city and 41 degrees in Parramatta and suburbs to the west before the Bureau of Meteorology later trimmed its prediction for the CBD maximum to 35 degrees.

The bureau also noted that an air quality forecast alert for poor conditions for the Sydney region has been issued by the Office of Environment and Heritage for Thursday as ozone levels are expected to exceed national air quality standards.

The lower temperature reading for the CBD hinged on the timing of the sea breezes, Brett Dutschke, a senior meteorologist at Weatherzone, said.

“It’s not a straightforward day,” he said, adding that Bankstown, Homebush and Parramatta should all notch maximums in the 40s regardless of the fickle coastal winds.

Penrith’s top so far has been 41.1 degrees, while Sydney’s Olympic Park reached 40.4 degrees and the city 32.8 degrees.

Thursday is also proving to muggy, particularly for the eastern suburbs where unusually warm sea temperatures – 25 degrees, according to Beachwatch – will lift humidity levels.

“It’s as warm as it gets,” Mr Dutschke said, adding that he can’t recall many times when off-shore water temperatures have been so warm.

US data indicate parts of the NSW coast are more than 3 degrees above normal:

Late change

The heat is likely to linger across the Sydney basin all through the afternoon.

“It’s still going to be hot until late into the evening,” Mr Dutschke said.

“It’s not the sort of evening to be opening the windows for,” he added.

People might instead set an alarm for early on Friday morning, when a change – or at least a shift in wind direction – is expected to move in.

Although Friday is likely to have the odd shower, “you wouldn’t call it cool,” Mr Dutschke said.

The bureau is forecasting a maximum of 29 for the city, and a degree or so warmer in the west on Friday.

Saturday will bring slightly cooler conditions and a greater chance of showers with a drop of 27 degrees. This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.
