After a weekend filled of ice-cold weather… we have now been blessed with some warmth.
Yesterday, temperatures in Sydney's western suburbs warmed up with the highest levels over a two-day period in 23 years.
On Monday, Richmond was only 12 degrees; yesterday temps rose back up and were sitting at a warm 22.4 degree
Weatherzone Senior Meteorologist Brett Dutschke told 9news.com.au, "Monday was quite cloudy so a lot of western Sydney was chilly on Monday. It was exceptionally cold for the average, largely because of cloud. And then during Monday night to Tuesday the air mass warmed up a bit and skies cleared.”
Adding, “So the warm up was a combination of those two things, which made Tuesday almost 10.5 degrees warmer than Monday in parts of Sydney.
"It's quite unusual to have that much of a warming change. It would have been very noticeable. You're much more likely to have a cooling change."
Sunshine and average warmer temperatures are expected for the rest of the week across the state with today sitting at around 18 degrees with mostly sunny skies.
