Prepare for another night of tossing and turning, temperatures for Sydney are forecast within the 30s as late as 9pm on Friday night according to Weatherzone.

“Similar to last night, we’re not really looking like we’re going to cool off much overnight,” said Rebecca Kamitakahara, meteorologist at the Bureau of Meteorology.

Thursday night’s minimum temperature at Penrith was 24.7 degrees, which was its warmest night since February. The city didn’t enjoy much more relief, with the temperature only dropping to 23.9 degrees.

“So at Penrith overnight [Friday] we’re only expecting it to drop down to 25 degrees, and in the city we’re only expecting it to drop down to 24 degrees,” Ms Kamitakahara said. “So another muggy night on the way unfortunately.”

Sydneysiders are suffering through another hot day, with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting temperatures to climb to 35 degrees in the city and 38 degrees in the west on Friday.

Showers and possibly some thunderstorms are expected to move across the Sydney basin in the afternoon and evening.

The greatest risk for showers is from about 4pm through to midnight, according to Weatherzone meteorologist Graeme Brittain.

“Humidity is going to be quite high with these showers as well,” he said.

“It will be quite uncomfortable conditions for sleeping as we move into this evening and overnight.”

A southerly wind change early on Saturday morning will mean that temperatures in the city won’t be quite as hot as Friday, with a forecast top of 28 degrees.

Western Sydney won’t be feeling this change though, with temperatures expected in the mid 30s again during the day on Saturday.

New Year’s Eve will be a fairly cloudy day with a chance of showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon, and possibly during the evening.

Mr Brittain said that while it will be cloudy, it is not expected to be low cloud cover, “So people should still be able to see the full fireworks display.”

Winds are expected to remain light through to midnight, so should not be a hindering factor to maximum firework enjoyment.

According to Weatherzone, the first day of 2017 is expected to bring showers and possibly a thunderstorm, as well as some hope for heat affected Sydneysiders as temperatures continue to drop.

The western suburbs are looking at a forecast top of 32 degrees while the city is expected to reach the high 20s.
