Sydney is currently basking in a heatwave as the temperature has climbed to record high levels.

Sydney is currently enjoying one of the hottest months of May it has ever seen, with temperatures soaring to 29.1 degrees.

The city has seen its hottest average temperatures for the month of May since 1942, with people from across the city flocking to its beaches in order to make the most of the weather.

As Australia is in the southern hemisphere, the weather is normally starting to cool at this time of year as the country is starting to move towards the winter months.

The hot temperatures have been seen after the city saw a cooler than normal summer.

While the temperature has been very high, it is yet to reach the top temperature for the month recorded on May 1st 1919, when the mercury reached 30 degrees.

Sydney is home to some of the most famous beaches in Australia, with both Bondi and Manly popular spots for both locals and visitors alike.
