Sydney Weather

Sydney has a mild, subtropical climate with pleasant weather all year round in general. Located in the southern hemisphere, any seasonal weather variations that do occur are reversed. As a result, November is the last month of spring in Sydney. The weather in November in Sydney is hard to predict, however it tends to be warming up as summer arrives. In November, the average daytime temperatures in the city are generally around 20°C and high temperatures can hit a balmy 24°C on some days which can feel rather hot. While temperatures do fall at night, they will never drop too low in November. The average minimum temperatures generally tend to stay above 16°C throughout the month.
