Sydney in June 2016: A warm, wet June with a cool finish


Sydney experienced another warm month during June 2016, despite a cold snap at the end of the month. Rainfall was well above average across the city, largely due to a severe East Coast Low during the first week of the month.

A warm month with a cool end

  • Both maximum and minimum temperatures above average across the city
  • Mean temperature at Observatory Hill 1.9 C above average and the equal seventh-warmest on record
  • Month started with 22 days above 18C at Observatory Hill, the longest June warm spell on record
  • Cold snap at the end of the month; six nights below 8 C between the 25th and 30th, the longest June cold spell since 2006
  • Maximum temperature of 11.7C at Observatory Hill on the 27th, the coldest day since 10.4C on 19August1996

Heavy rain across the city

  • A wet June for Sydney, with monthly rainfall records broken in parts of the city
  • Normal number of rain days at Observatory Hill, but five days with at least 25mm (the average is one day)
  • An East Coast Low at the start of the month produced 226.6mm over three days at Observatory Hill, the wettest June period since 1991, and broke daily rainfall records at some stations
  • A second East Coast Low produced widespread totals above 25mm on the 20th

East Coast Low causes severe weather


An East Coast Low over 4-6 June caused heavy rain, strong winds and large waves. Major flooding was observed in the Georges River, while severe coastal erosion was reported in areas including Coogee and Collaroy. For more information see Special Climate Statement 57: Extensive early June rainfall affecting the Australian east coast.

Notes

The Monthly climate summary lists the main features of the weather in Sydney using the most timely and accurate information available on the date of publication; it will generally not be updated. Later information, including data that has had greater opportunity for quality control, will be presented in the Monthly Weather Review.

A climate summary is generally published on the first working day of each month.

This statement has been prepared based on information available at 9 am on Friday 1 July 2016. Some checks have been made on the data, but it is possible that results will change as new information becomes available.

Averages for individual sites are long-term means based on observations from all available years of record, which vary widely from site to site. They are not shown for sites with less than 10 years of record, as they cannot then be calculated reliably.
The median is sometimes more representative than the mean of long-term average rain.

The Rank indicates how rainfall this time compares with the climate record for the site, based on the decile ranking (very low rainfall is in decile 1, low in decile 2 or 3, average in decile 4 to 7, high in decile 8 or 9 and very high is in decile 10).
The Fraction of average shows how much rain has fallen this time as a percentage of the long-term mean.

The ACORN-SAT dataset is used for temperature area averages.
