Enjoy The Cooler Weather Sydney, Because Sunday Will Be HOT!
Sydney is expected to cop its hottest day EVER this Sunday as the never-ending heatwave continues to bombard us.
The warmest day ever recorded smashed 45.7C at Observatory Hill in January 2013, beating the previous record of 45.3C set way back in January 1939.
The forecast for Sunday at the moment is 36 degrees in the city and 41 in Penrith and the western suburbs.
However, Weatherzone meteorologist Jessica Miskelly says there's potential for it to be the hottest day in Sydney on record in both the city and western suburbs.
'We're looking at an extremely hot day on Sunday, it could be the warmest day on record,' Ms Miskelly told Daily Mail Australia.
Ms Miskelly said heatwaves had been prevalent on the southeast coast this summer, and that February could also record warmer than average temperatures.
Sydney has just endured its warmest pair of nights in 158 years of records, Weatherzone said.
'The minimum temperatures of 25.8 degrees on Sunday morning and 26.2 degree this morning ousted the record,' said meteorologist Ben Domensino
'Richmond extended its tally of days over 40 degrees this season to eight on Sunday, distancing this season from the previous record of six days from 2002/03. Richmond has more than 70 years of observational history.
'Bankstown's 42.7 degrees was the highest temperature recorded in the Basin yesterday and the suburb's fifth day above 40 degrees this season. This summer now beats the 1979 record of four days.'
Mr Domensino said to enjoy the the southerly change today and Wednesday before it's gone.
'Hotter weather will return to the Sydney Basin from Thursday and build towards what is shaping up to be another sweltering and potentially record-challenging weekend,' he said.
