Sydney has a temperate climate and experiences rainfall throughout the year, especially between March and June.

The hottest months are January and February, which can see daytime temperatures reaching as high as 90°F (35°C). The potential for bushfires in the city’s surrounds during the summer months is high.
Winters can have a few warm days but can also be wet and cold. The coldest month is July, though temperatures rarely drop below 47°F (9°C). The city is prone to hail and wind storms, and sometimes experiences flash flooding.
