I'd love permanent daylight saving time as well. The 7:10 AM sunrise on April 6th is hardly late anyway. Many major cities around the world have post 8:00 AM sunrises. Even Melbourne has sunrises as late as 7:37 AM.

A muggy night it is, still 23.3c at 3.20am dewpoint 21.7c and humidity sitting at 91%.
And fully overcast too, so I doubt it will get much cooler.

Seems like today’s min will have been set at 9am yesterday, only just fell below 24c at OH tonight. Urgh...

GMT 11 would be pretty painful for those that live further south such as in Melbourne and Hobart where the sun would come up well after 8am. I also hate leaving work in the dark but I prefer it over leaving home in the dark. Yes I wouldn't like to live somewhere where the days are as short as London in winter, although you'd get used to it I'm sure.

Well Sydney Obs Hill has had a very warm night only dropping to 23.9°C. I was thinking it would be up there with some of the warmer March nights on record, but 9am yesterday was only 21.4°C.

Whoops didn't notice there was another page! So I basically repeated what McBobbings said.

The weather isn't really giving much hint on the changing season yet, at least near the coast, but the other signs are appearing:

- First hints of Autumn colour, although it will be another month before it gets seriously underway.
- Cicadas: I heard them yesterday for the first time in a while, much quieter than the raucous chorus of just a few weeks ago. It made me realise their absence.
- It's dark at 6:30 AM, even 7:00 AM is pretty gloomy on cloudy days.

- The other signals will rapidly follow:
-- NRL starts in a few days - March 14
-- The equinox a week later: 21 March, 8:58 am AEDT
-- End of Daylight Saving: late this year, April 7.
-- Easter, also late: Sunday April 21

In due course we'll get sub 15 minima, which will predominate in a month's time, then later sub 10. Most maxima will be sub 25 in a few weeks, with sub 20's starting to appear. Actually, on the coast, the temperature signals are quite subtle - eventually you bring out a blanket, a coat or jumper then, some time in May, you might occasionally use a heater. After all, the difference between Summer and Winter in Sydney is only 10 degrees on the coast, 11 or 12 inland.

Sydney SST charging back towards 25. And hopefully beyond.

I guess the dip was temporary so as to disappoint the weekend crowds and the nippers etc. Typical.

The range would be closer to 14c for Penrith during the last few years. March is the last proper month of summer in the Nepean-Hawkesbury. Days and nights are still summer like in terms of temperature and the seabreeze effect across the basin is still in force.

April usually experiences a very pleasant drop off night temperatures but is still warm by day. May is the true transition month out here with the first light frosts and significantly milder days. By this point, maximum temperatures are similar to OH.

By comparison, coastal Sydney's seasonal change is a lot less pronounced and, in some years, OH won't record a sub-10c minimum until July.

I can’t recall a June ever not getting to at least a 9c. All time warmest June was 12.5c average in 1967 at OH. I’ve checked every year to 1960 and all June’s between 2018 and 1960 have had at least 3 sub 10c mins, most June’s having at least 1in the first week.

The forecast shows a damp but not particularly wet week after a brief heat spike tomorrow. Rainfall totals for Sydney and Penrith, in round figures, are 10-40 mm. That looks like hit or miss storms. Thunderstorms are forecast on 5 of the next 7 days. Threadworthy?

----
Re temperature ranges around Sydney:
- Sydney OH 1981-2019: 13.1 - 23.1 (10.0)
- Richmond 1993-2019: 10.6 - 24.2 (13.6)

----
Re sub 10 at OH, the 'hottest' coldest June minimum was 8.6 in 2014. Every June back to the 80s has dropped below 8 except 2014 which looks like a standout.
Most Mays drop below 10. 2014 and 1988 were exceptions but every other May since the 80s has dropped below 10.

Drops like bricks from March onwards round my way; sub-freezing minimums occur most summers, too—particularly in December, which always seems to get below freezing one way or another.

Regarding maximum temps, the heftiest drop of bricks is from March to April; oftentimes by April, the first flakes of snow start to fall, as well as regular sub-10° C maximums. What also sees a hefty drop from March to April is sunshine; notable increase in precipitation, likewise cloud-cover.

Rather petty compared to the drops they receive in the Riverina, however! poke

It was pretty smoky here today too!!

Well looks like a couple of interesting days coming up, maybe as early as tonight, but I reckon it will be a bit of a hit and miss scenario, I suppose it will be something different to talk about!!
Lets hope its interesting.

All the comparisons of how Autumn cools down are piss weak compared to a lot of places.

I used to work with a guy from Fort Wayne in Indiana. Summers there are hot. However, he said that mid-Winter in Sydney is the same as mid October for them. All thanks to Canada of course.

Yep Homer, according to the updated forecast for tonight, the upoer Hunter has a chance of a thunderstorm. The marine forecast has a chance of a storm as well for the morning.

I suppose it's just a wait and see game now if anything eventuates.

I'm so excited to finally be getting the Autumn Break, going by EC most of the state is as well all the way to Cobar. With an easterly flow/upper trough combo. Last Autumn we completely missed a break as well, hopefully it eventuates. Access is also backing this event inland as well grin.

Cheers, hadn't noticed that. The Sydney forecast was rather benign. Wasn't expecting anything significant close by.

Homer, Doesn't look like anything significant happened.

Again a very humid night, current temp 22.3c dewpoint 21.4c and humidity 95%.
A few stars are appearing in the sky, I'm still hoping for some offshore action.
