The climate of Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, lying on the southeast coast of Australia, is subtropical oceanic, with mild winters and warm summers.
The wind blows frequently, especially from October to April, that is, in the warm season (being that it's in the Southern Hemisphere, the seasons in Sydney are reversed in comparison to Europe or North America).
The sun shines on a regular basis, even though some cloudiness can form quite often, and sometimes, it can lead to showers and thunderstorms, which typically do not last long. However, every so often, the remnants of a tropical cyclone can get this far, bringing heavy rains and strong winds, especially from January to March.
Although the heat is generally not excessive, the wind from the desert can raise the temperature in a spectacular way, though for short periods. In January 2013, the temperature reached 46 ᵒC (115 ᵒF), though for just one day. The wind blowing from the desert is strong and dry, and sometimes, it can cause fires in the hills behind the town, so much so that the air can be filled with smoke.
