Sydney witnesses hottest May day in nearly a century

SYDNEY, 27 May (Xinhua) -- With winter fast approaching, Sydney enjoyed a last blast of summer on Tuesday to record its warmest May day in almost a century when temperature reached a top of 28 degrees Celsius.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Simon Louis said it was the warmest May day since May 1, 1919.

"It's pretty warm for the tail end of the month, and it's not predicted to be cold again," he told local media.

Louis said the unseasonable warm weather was a result of a front coming across the state from the west.

"Once the front goes through today it will knock the temperatures back for the rest of the week but they will still be above average most likely."

Waverly Council lifeguard, Trent Maxwell, said numbers of beachgoers dropped over the past couple of weeks after a "little cold snap."

But last weekend at Tamarama and Bondi breaches was "just as busy as a summer's day."

"It's going to be a bloody hot one," he said. "I think the locals are loving it."

Maxwell expected a busy day at Bondi especially for the life guards.

"The rips are running today."

The weather is predicted remain between 22-24 degrees Celsius for the rest of the week, compared with the May average of 19.5 degrees Celsius.
