The countdown for the return of school is well and truly underway, but a few more days of blue skies and mid-30s temperatures should distract you long enough to forget – just for a moment.

Sydney is set to enjoy warmer than average temperatures through to Thursday, before a low pressure trough in the west of the state moves through, bringing the wet once more.

But until the rains are here, kids across the state should enjoy their last weekday opportunity to frolic in the sun, surf and sand.

“We have some pretty nice days coming up, especially Tuesday, where around the city will be 29 degrees,” said Kim Westcott, Weatherzone meteorologist.

“It will be warmer again on Wednesday at 32 degrees, and Thursday will be the warmest, about 34 for the city, and even warmer temps in the western suburbs, [reaching] around 38 degrees in Richmond.”

Despite rain setting in, warmer temperatures should remain on Friday with a top of 31 degrees.

The low pressure trough at the end of the week will bring a couple of millimetres of rain on Thursday, around 10-15 millimetres on Friday and up to 10 millimetres on Saturday.

Ms Westtcott said, as most of Sydney has already seen “at least their average January rainfall,” this weekend will “add a bit of icing to the cake and really get the grass going.”

NSW school kids may be less pleased about said “icing”, as they bid farewell to their summer holiday freedom with a wet Monday also.
