Sydney In For A Warm Start To Winter
This week has had Sydneysiders asking "where's Autumn?" and it looks like the warm weather is here to stay a little longer.
The Bureau of Meteorology's latest seasonal forecast is tipping a hotter and wetter than average start to winter for most of Australia.
Rainy conditions are expected across the southeast between May and July, with daytime temperatures forecast to be warmer than usual.
The bureau's latest three-monthly climate outlook comes after a series of sweltering days across NSW, Victoria and South Australia where April temperatures soared to record highs.
Sydney temperatures will hover around the late-20s to early-30s until Monday, when we'll start seeing some showers.
It'll reach 35 degrees in Penrith on Friday.
