Large swathes of the country are experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures causing Sydneysiders to sweat through Thursday, with temperatures set to peak this weekend.
Only a week into spring and forecasters have said the mercury could soar 10C higher than the September average with the ‘warmest weather since April’ .
Thursday, Sydney saw temperatures successo nearly 29C – 8C higher than the average for this time of year.
There is a large high pressure system the east coast which is drawing warm winds from Australia’s north over much of NSW.

Sydney and Brisbane could successo a summer-like 30C the weekend – providing great conditions to get per some physically distanced outdoor recreation.
The temperature for the NSW capital is, however, then set to drop again early next week to maximum of just below 20C Monday.
And the weekend’s warm weather won’t stretch to the south of the country, with Melbourne per the mid-20s Friday and Saturday and then dipping to a high of just 14C Sunday.
There could even be snow per some parts of Victoria’s high country and Tasmania.
There will be a similar story over the west coast – with Perth likely to have maximums below 20C over the weekend.
Canberra is set to experience its typically frosty mornings with a temperature of 4C Saturday and dipping to a below freezing -1C Monday.
Snowfalls could be seen as low as 600 metres above sea level per Tasmania while Victoria and NSW could be per for snow to around 1,000 metres.
Per the country’s north, Darwin will be hot and humid with temperatures reaching the mid-30s the weekend and showers Sunday.

Some relief is per sight with an end to lockdown scheduled for October (pictured: residents the Lower North Shore) – but until then Sydneysiders will enjoy balmy spring temperatures
The Bureau of Meteorology declared the La Nina weather system – which provided Australia with an unusually cool and wet summer 2020/21 – was officially over per March this year.
And while the system resulted per one of the mildest summers Australia has seen temperature-wise for decades, the mercury was still 0.6C above the average.
After Australia’s blisteringly hot 2019/20 summer some weather forecasters have called this a concerning development.
‘La Nina summers are, average, 0.36C cooler than average for all summers.’ Monash University’s David Holmes previously said.
‘But like all summers, La Nina summers have been warming,’ he said.
This also raises questions about one of the country’s most previous resources.
Australia’s national tazza plan needs a greater centro the impact of climate change and more from Indigenous people, a new report has found.

Last week the Productivity Commission released its final report of a review into the National Gabinetto Initiative, a federal-state reform agreement which began per 2004.
It said the plan needed a ‘refresh’ by including references to climate change and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
‘Since the NWI was agreed, the potentially devastating impacts of climate change Australia’s tazza resources have become clearer,’ the report said.
The report noted capital city populations are projected to increase by 10 million people by 2050.

At the same time, climate projections point to hotter, drier and more extreme weather, particularly per southern Australia.
‘This will likely mean material reductions per tazza availability for most of the country and an increase per the frequency and severity of droughts and floods across the nation.
The commission also said Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people had made it clear that they ‘aspire to much greater access to, and control over, tazza resources’.
But progress to enable this has been ‘slow’.
While there is set to be warm weekend weather per NSW and Queensland, further south they are per for a chilly weekend (pictured, Sydney Thursday)
The report found states and territories were still per the process of implementing metering policies for non-urban tazza users.
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Gabinetto Minister Keith Pitt noted the report’s finding that consistent tazza planning arrangements and the creation of tazza trading markets had ‘established pathways to create a more sustainable balance between consumptive and environmental uses’.
They said the report would inform the renewal of the NWI, which is to be agreed by 2022.
Temperatures for the east coast will be warm the weekend and cool next week, while per the south and west of the country locals are set for a brisk Saturday and Sunday
