Sydney - Recent Annual Temperatures and Rainfall





The numbers here describe what the weather in Sydney, New South Wales Australia was like for every year since 2010. A series of tables gives data by year for temperature and precipitation.

They begin with average maximum and minimum temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius. That's followed by how many really hot and cold days occurred each year. Then there's information on how much rain actually landed during recent years, as well as how often Sydney had wet weather.

The climate data come from weather measurements made at Sydney's Observatory Hill Park.
