Sydney weather: Summer confirmed as city's hottest for days and nights in 157 years

Sydney's record-breaking weather juggernaut rolls on, with summer confirmed as the city's hottest for both days and nights over records stretching back 157 years.

The average of days and nights in the Harbour City was 2.8 degrees warmer than the norm, beating the summer of 1990-91 as Sydney's warmest, the Bureau of Meteorology said in its seasonal report.

The record warm summer included the hottest ever month, in January, and built on Sydney's hottest year set in 2016. Of the other summer months, December was the city's second-warmest and February equal-second warmest, the bureau said.

Summer was marked by "both the lack of cold during the season and several significant heatwaves", said Acacia Pepler, a bureau climatologist, noting the pattern fitted in with climate change.

2. It's more data

 

Are you interested in having less information?

I suspect you might be bothered by more information, particularly if it leads away from what you want to believe to be true

4. You sound angry when given data

 

Angry anonymous guy's completely unsupported assertion is supposed to outweigh the viewpoint and evidence presented by the vast majority of scientists and every scientific academy in the world.

Do you know how completely ridiculous you sound?

It's worse than ridiculous (if you actually believe it), it's complete deranged.

All the scientists in all different kinds of societies are all in a conspiracy together.

Thanks for bumping the thread though, little guy.

7. I must be cranky from trying to stay warm in all this global warming.

It's up to 15°F, from 11°F earlier. Holy plastic banana Batman. Global warming is real. If I plotted temps from 3am to present hour it would look just like Michael 'gerbil boy' Mann's hockey stick graph!!!!!

10. Nope you're a troll

 

You could present some evidence, an adult argument. Something.

You don't do that.

You're the one with the playbook.

Look at yourself in the mirror sometime. At your age to behave this way is really not dignified.

I'm going to ignore you now.

13. Can you not read?

 

It doesn't say what you think it says.



Anyway, other than your reading miscomprehension, what we are interested in trend lines overall, both geographically and in time. And that means things are getting warmer and warmer.
