Sydney Seasons and Weather Patterns 2016-06-21T02:38:08+10:00

Sydney has ideal temperatures for work and play. Almost every day is a sunny day! All year round the weather can be perfect for beach days or exploring the city. Temperatures never go below zero. Thanks to the ocean and its proximity to the equator, temperatures are never extreme but are usually mild. Summers are often perfectly warm. Winter is not extremely cold. It isn’t constantly raining in one season only.

Sydney spring season usually starts in September and goes on into November. The highest average temperature is 24 degrees Celsius. The lowest average temperature is at a cool 13.7 degrees Celsius. It’s not so humid during this season. Running and other forms of outdoor exercise or sports can be done during these not-excruciatingly-hot months. However, spring is the most volatile of the seasons in Sydney. Nights can go as low as 8 degrees Celsius and that can change to 37 degrees Celsius during the day. The month of November is said to have the most wind.

Summer in Sydney is three months from December to February. Minimum average temperature in those three months is about 18.8 degrees Celsius. Maximum average temperature in those months is 27.9 degrees Celsius. To many, those not-too-hot and not-too-cold temperatures are perfect for summer weather. Families can take advantage of that good weather and the holiday season by going camping underneath the stars or by enjoying other outdoor leisure activities. It’s also a great season to hit the beach. The western part of the city is recorded to be higher in average temperature than the other parts of the city that have sea breezes that moderate the temperature in the summer months.

Autumn weather which is during the months of March, April, and May is similar to summer but nights and days start get a little cooler with the hottest average temperature at 23.7 degrees Celsius and the coldest temperature average of 14.4 degrees Celsius. It’s a perfect time to explore the city parks and go for walks along the coast. It’s not as sunny as summer. Fog can also be a problem in the mornings.

The winter months of June, July, and August are not too cold and the hottest average temperature is 18.4 degrees Celsius with the coldest average temperature being 8.4 degrees Celsius. Temperatures can plummet down to 5 degrees Celsius. Frost can also occur in the western part of the city. Fog is also very likely to happen especially in the month of June. Snow is rare as the last recorded snowfall was reported to have been in the year 1836.

Because the climate in Sydney has become more dry in the last few years, there is risk of bush fires around the city. Smog is also noticeable at times even without smoke from fires. Summer and autumn have the most rainy days which can be 22 days out of a three-month season. Summer has slightly more rainfall at an average of 84 mm during the summer months in comparison to autumn which has 81.13 mm of average rainfall.
