Sydney Is Sweltering Through Its Hottest Week In 50 Years


Sydney Is Sweltering Through Its Hottest Week In 50 Years

Sydneysiders are set to endure record-breaking weather as temperatures soar to  new heights this November.

If you were struggling to fall asleep last night with the weather heating up thinking ‘is it going to cool down soon?’ the answer is no.

Although we’re not struggling with those high 30s of Summer, we ARE at the foot of what is set to be the hottest November week in nearly 50 years!

Over the next seven consecutive days, temperatures are predicted to remain in the mid-to high 20s, something which hasn’t happened in November since 1968!

"The last time Sydney had seven consecutive days with maximum temperatures equal to, or above, 25 degrees in November was back in 1968, and it's only happened twice in November in the last 118 years," Weatherzone meteorologist Ben Domensino told the Sydney Morning Herald.

But before you start reaching for your swimmers, we have some not-so-great news – It’s also going to be very, very wet.

Whilst we are happy to be done with our coats and scarves, the raincoats and umbrellas will still be needed with a 60-90% chance of rain expected throughout this coming week!


On the bright side, it’s never been a better time to blast Belinda Carlisle’s 'Summer Rain' while you dance outside and cool off!
