New South Wales Set For An Unusually Hot Easter And Anzac Day

  • Parents Only

Because Easter is usually synonymous with wet weather and chocolate feasting, this news has got us buzzing (and wishing we had booked a mini getaway). According to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), coastal areas of NSW are expected to reach the mid-20s over Easter and continue until Anzac Day.

Are you one of the lucky ones who booked three days off work to get 10 days holiday?? 

If you're heading further afield, you'll be happy to hear that some inland areas are expected to reach 30 degrees Celsius.

Jane Golding from the BOM said most of NSW would enjoy warmer than average temperatures.

"We're looking at daytime temperatures a couple of degrees above average along the coast … so getting into the mid-twenties," she said.

"As you head west into western NSW, particularly down along the Victorian and South Australian borders, temperatures … five or more degrees above average.

"Places like Griffith and Wagga will see temperatures up towards 30 degrees, so that's quite unusual for this time of year."

Sydney Staycation Weather

Enjoy your egg hunts because there is little chance of rain over the Easter weekend! And even better news, the BOM expects the warmer weather to continue until May.
