The climate of Sydney is humid subtropical (Köppen Cfa), shifting from mild and cool in winter to warm and hot in the summer, with no extreme seasonal differences as the weather is moderated by proximity to the ocean. More contrasting temperatures are recorded in the inland western suburbs. Although there is no distinct dry or wet season, rainfall peaks in the first half of the year and is at its lowest in the second half. Precipitation varies across the region, with areas adjacent to the coast being the wettest. The city experiences around 20 thunderstorms per year.

Sydney has 103.9 clear days annually, with the monthly percent possible sunshine ranging from 53% in January to 72% in August. Sydney's heat is predominantly dry in spring, but usually humid in the summertime, especially late summer – however, when temperatures soar over 35 °C, the humidity is generally low as such high temperatures are brought by searing winds from the Australian desert. In some hot summer days, low pressure troughs would increase humidity and southerly busters would decrease temperatures by late afternoon or early evening. In late autumn and winter, east coast lows can bring large volumes of rainfall.

  3. I always like the days after a good rain. Everything feels so fresh and clear again. It must be quite refreshing in Sydney.

  4. Beautiful photos, Nick. When my young brother and I visited Australia, Most of our time was spent in Queensland. We flew in and out of Sydney but didn't see much of it except the zoo and the Opera House. We were able to get tickets to the play being featured, and we laughed and laughed all through it, so I can say we had a wonderful time in Sydney, but the flight, not so much. When we got back to the west coast of Canada, I slept for two nights and two days.
