The temperature in Sydney has increased to 39 degrees C.

Holidaymakers taking flights to Sydney will need to remember their sun cream and flip-flops as the city is set to see its temperature soar to 39 degrees C.

The Sydney west region is likely to see temperatures hit the high levels today (January 4th 2012), with other areas such as Penrith and Richmond also set to see their temperatures climb, with the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) predicting temperatures eight degrees above the seasonal average.

In central Sydney and Wollongong, it was estimated the mercury could hit 32 degrees C before the end of the day.

“North, northwest winds are bringing these hot temperatures,” explained duty forecaster with the BoM Peter Zmijewski.

He said these winds are coming in off the desert.

Travellers looking for some luxury after taking flights to Sydney could be tempted to book into the city’s Four Seasons Hotel, as it was stated to have the best service Australasia and South Pacific in the Conde Nast Traveller UK 2012 Gold List.
