A warm autumn has followed Sydney's cool summer, with the city recording its hottest May day in 70 years today.
The temperature at Observatory Hill was 29.1 degrees about 1.30pm, making it the hottest day in May since 1942, Weatherzone meteorologist Doug Fenton said.
The hottest May day on record for Sydney was May 1, 1919, when the temperature reached 30 degrees.
