Temperatures in Sydney have hit 30 degrees after being the coolest summer in 15 years.

Travellers on flights to Sydneyhoping for some sunshine could be pleased to hear the city has finally seen its temperatures increased to over 30 degrees C.

The city had been stuck in the high 20s for much of the summer, staying below 30 for a 60-day stretch.

However, Weatherzone has now reported it has increased past the 30 mark, ending the longest spell under 30 degrees the city has seen for 15 years.

While the summer so far may have seemed a little chilly for many people who live in Sydney, it was still better than the temperatures recorded during the summer of 1952/53, when not one day saw the mercury rise above 30 degrees.

“Today (January 30th 2012) we got a rare burst of northerly winds, which combined with mostly clear skies and a warm air mass,” said Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke.

Many people taking flights to Sydney soon could be looking forward already to one of the summer’s biggest events, after it was announced Kylie Minogue would be headlining the Mardi Gras celebrations.
