It's summer in August for Sydney's runners, children … and dinosaurs

Sydneysiders are making the most of a warm winter, enjoying the outdoors at parks and beaches across the city.

Centennial Park hosted the fifth annual Science in the Swamp event, launching National Science Week, as children and dinosaurs alike enjoyed a warm August day in the park.

The sun was also shining on The Sun-Herald City2Surf with racers enjoying a warm and sunny day.

Sydney is set to experience more summer-like weather this week with temperatures set to reach the mid-20s across most of the city.

Monday will be mostly sunny with a maximum of 23 degrees predicted for Sydney. 

The mercury is set to peak at 24 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday in the city but could reach 25 in the west.

Sydneysiders can expect a warm start on Wednesday with an expected minimum of 17 degrees. There is the possibility of light morning rain on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Weatherzone said the city was experiencing a warmer than average August.

“We’re going to see above average conditions for most of this week,” he said. “We’re seeing a high pressure system over the country and that’s trapping heat in the interior.”

A cool change on Thursday afternoon will mean the temperature is unlikely to reach above 18 degrees on Friday and Saturday.

The city will remain dry for most of the week with only a slight chance of showers at the end of the week.
