After Record Rain, Get Ready To Sweat This Weekend Sydney

Sydney, break out the sunscreen!

After parts of Sydney have copped record rainfalls, we are now gearing up for an unusually warm March weekend.

On the back of below-average rainfalls this week some sections of the city experienced their biggest dump of rain in five years, however the western suburbs had much less rain, although Penrith did record 20mm of rain.

And while there is the chance of some rain again on Wednesday, things are set to heat up this weekend.

We are expecting temps in the high 20s before the mercury climbs towards the high-30s by the weekend with Penrith forecast to reach 39 degrees on Sunday.

Brett Dutschke, senior meteorologist with Weatherzone says that Observatory Hill in the city hasn't had a weekend with both days over 30 degrees in a year, while Penrith has had nine - including two above 40 degrees.

"Some parts of NSW will likely have their warmest March day in three or four years," Mr Dutschke said.
