Warm weather sweeps across the east coast as Aussies prepare for another ...

Australia's east coast will continue to get an early taste of summer with warm weather and sunny skies, while Perth will be hit with a chilly blast.

A slow-moving low pressure trough is gradually pushing eastwards and bringing warm winds into the east coast with Sydney and Brisbane experiencing high temperatures for the entirety of the long weekend.

Sydney is expected to hit 27C on Sunday and 29C on Monday, with residents keen to make the most of their three-day weekend.

Northerly winds are responsible for Sunday's 5C-above-average day with a high of 27C as Sydneysiders are expected to flock east to the city's beaches.

Winds will turn northeasterly along the coast which will bring cooler afternoon temperatures, Weatherzone's Felix Levesque said.

'Further to the west and away from this seabreeze, the mercury will continue to climb, peaking at 33C and 32C degrees for Penrith and Blacktown respectively,' he said.

'The final day of the long weekend will be the warmest with temperatures reaching 29C in Sydney and 33C in Blacktown and Penrith, about seven degrees above average.'

A drop in temperature will hit the city after the sun sets on Monday with a cool southerly wind reaching the city.

The cooling event in addition to a low-pressure trough will lead to a string of chilly days and rain for the remainder of the week. 

Waverley Council, which includes Bondi, Coogee, and Tamarama beaches, released a warning for prospective beachgoers.

'If you're planning on heading down to the beach to cool off as the weather warms up this long weekend, make sure you stay COVID safe by social distancing and limiting gatherings to 20 people or less,' the council said. 

Brisbane will reach a maximum of 27C over the three-day break with temperatures remaining warm for the remainder of the week. 

The mercury climbed towards 30C in Melbourne on Saturday - and crowds gathered at St Kilda only to be met with an increased police presence. 

Meanwhile temperatures are set to plummet in Perth overnight hitting just 7C - the coldest night since September 13.

Perth has only seen a handful of single-digit nights since August with summer temperatures a long way off for the Western Australia capital.
