Cool and wet in Sydney

Joel Pippard, 26 February 2018

Sydney just had its coldest and wettest pair of days so far this year.

Cloud, rain and southerly winds have given an unfamiliarly mild feel to the last couple of days in central NSW.

Gardens and parks were given a welcome drink as more than 70mm of rain fell in the city's gauge during Sunday and Monday. This was the city's best two-day total since June.

Maximum temperatures reached 22 degrees and 24 degrees in the city on Sunday and Monday respectively, making it Sydney's coolest pair of days since December.

Skies will clear and the temperature will rise again from Tuesday as the low pressure trough responsible for the past two days of grey weather moves out into the Tasman Sea.
