Sydney is, by all definitions, an extreme climate zone. Bordered to the North and West by semi-arid land, and to the East by warm tropical currents, the mixing of air masses seems to be a perennial struggle between wet and dry.
Because of this, Sydney experiences both floods and droughts in equal measure. For instance, last February, Sydney had 400mm of rain in a couple of days. This year, a similar amount, 403.8mm has been recorded to date in the month of March 2021.
