Forgot to mention last weeks' stats:

High Temp: 24C
Low Temp: 0C
Precipitation:
20 mm(all rain)
Sunshine: 48% of possible
Other phenomena: 2 fogs, 1 thunder day, 1 frost.

And some weather news:

Surprise return to summer for Sydney this week

After last weeks' chill, many Sydney residents were well within their rights to pack away their bikinis and boardies. However a blocking high pressure system is wining and dining in the Tasman Sea later in the week, something that has been absent most of this summer to date. Expect plenty of sunshine and warm to unseasonably warm temperatures as we get closer to the weekend. There's even a chance of record breaking warmth come Sunday, when the mercury is expected to soar above 30C. That hasn't happened this late in March for 40 years, says Bureau of Climate and Weather meteorologist Hugh Jass.

"Normally, the Antarcanadian continent is rapidly cooling at this time of year as cold fronts from the south begin to assert themselves. However, this high pressure system is a strong bastard and isn't budging for a few days, allowing warm air from the northern interior to funnel down to us", Mr. Jass went on to say.

The highest temperature recorded in Sydney in March is 34C, recorded on the 1st March 1998 in the midst of the "super El-Nino".

Situations like that are more common than you think - a lackluster season followed by a late send-off. Los Angeles in 2010 had a cool summer, and then had a heat wave around the autumn equinox that set a new all-time record high. I believe it was 113F from them. Of course L.A. is capable of hotter temperatures than Sydney, but the pattern is similar.

Record high for both Sydney (Australia) and L.A is 45C/113F. Or are you talking about my fantasy Sydney, Antarcanada? The record high for the fantasy Sydney is 44C/111F, but extreme heat like this is a 1 in 100 year event and exclusively confined to January and the first couple of weeks of February.

Your statement is correct if we're talking potential for heat in autumn/fall. West coast climates retain their potential for heat well into the autumn while those on the east coast generally do not, the reverse is true in spring (much faster warm up on the east coast, can see this now in the US).

When averaged over the year, temps in Sydney (Australia) and L.A are pretty much the same, not surprising given that both lie on the 34th parallel. Of course, the background climate is vastly different (Cfa v Csa/borderline semi-arid).

I was mainly referring to late-season heat, not heat in general, although I was unaware Sydney could get that hot in summertime. Perhaps I got it mixed up with Melbourne. At any rate, there's a much faster decrease in heat potential in Sydney than in Los Angeles come "autumn".

Yep, Sydney (AU) usually sees a couple of days in the 40's C every summer as hot dry NW'ly winds develop ahead of cold fronts. This setup can produce unseasonal warmth most any time of the year, such as late 20's C in August, 30C in September and 35C in October. However in late summer and early autumn NW winds are rare because the requisite fronts are absent for the most part.

The same is true for the fantasy Sydney 10 degrees further south, but here extreme heat is much rarer due to increased cloud cover ahead of cold fronts and the window is much shorter due to latitude.

1/1/06 reached 44C in Sydney (AU), that's a day no resident will forget in a hurry. This day featured a strong NW wind after a big high pressure system on top of a record sunny December. As you can imagine, fire conditions were horrendous.

The St. Edward's Weather Service has issued an Ice Storm Watch for the region. A significant icing event is expected late Tuesday through Thursday as the surface temperature remains slightly below to right around freezing. Total ice accumulation could be a quarter inch to half an inch. Warnings are expected to be issued tomorrow.

In the mean time, temperatures are hovering in the low to mid 30s with periods of light rain. This may cause icy conditions in some spots the rest of today and tomorrow. Please use extra caution when driving on roads and walking on sidewalks, as they may be untreated.
