Bondi Beach was packed with swimmers and sunbathers today as thousands flocked to the waves to escape 34C heat.

The hottest part of Sydney was the airport where the mercury reached 33.8C. Bourke was the warmest town in New South Wales at 37C.

Revellers made the most of the warm autumn weather by taking to the sand and sea before rains were due to fall on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Melbourne is forecast to suffer 100/km winds tonight and tomorrow as a belt of strong gusts move up from Tasmania.

Temperatures and snowfall could reach shocking levels compared to previous years, said David Taylor, who runs the East Coast Weather Facebook page.

Mr Taylor, who has correctly predicted major weather events in the past, said that the icy conditions would impact huge areas of the country.

‘It will be slightly cooler than normal in the north but the real cold will be in the southern states and southeast Queensland,’ he told The Cairns Post.

‘I wouldn’t be surprised if there is snow in places where it hasn’t snowed for a long time.’

Mr Taylor has explained that his forecast formula uses changes in sunspot activity, along with Global Forecast System modelling, and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecast.

Mr Taylor said tracking sunspot activity has enabled him to successfully predict weather events in the past.

He was lauded for correctly predicting that 600mm of rain would fall in Townsville on February 28.

He said weather systems were susceptible to the ‘butterfly effect’ in which seemingly small changes can have vast and far reaching outcomes.
