The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News - KEELY McDONOUGH

SYD­NEY is fi­nally plung­ing into sum­mer, with the city ex­pected to ex­pe­ri­ence its first 40C day this side of win­ter next week.

Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­o­gist fore­caster Rob Tag­gart said “hot con­di­tions are com­ing in a big way” for the city and the West.

“The cur­rent fore­cast is 32C for the city and 40C for the west on Wed­nes­day,” Mr Tag­gart said. “The new week will start off fairly warm, 31C in the west on Sun­day, and warm­ing up from there.”

Pen­rith hit a siz­zling 34C yes­ter­day while the city felt the heat at 31C.

A cool change will reach the city to­day but will be gone by Sun­day.

Sydneysiders Fiona Hard­less and Rus­sell Davies made the most of yes­ter­day’s warmth, tak­ing a dip at a plunge pool and bar set up by Pier One Ho­tel on the har­bour.
