el -- I'll have the forecast next.
The stock market has hit a fresh 5- year high, ening the week up 12 points. Our dollar is buying:

The average petrol price in Sydney is: It's a good time to buy with prices near the bottom of the cycle. Here's Amber.After yesterday's heat, we returned to more spring- like conditions today - blue skys and sunshine and moderate westerly winds. It reached a top of 23 in the city. That's still three above average. 24 in Campbelltown and Parramatta. A top of 26 for Penrith. Tomorrow a high will keep much of the interior dry while a trough will maintain very warm thundery weather in Queensland A high will cause brisk showers and the high land snow we saw to ease in Victoria and Tasmania. Around the country:

In northern NSW tomorrow there is a collapse of a morning storm in Narrabri and Grafton with a top of 33. Very warm weather for Newcastle, a top of 32. Albury will see a shower or two, a top of 16. It will be sunny in Batemans Bay with a top of 24. Sydney can expect a very dry, hot and windy day with wind gusts up to 60km/h to 70km/h. They will peak around lunchtime. We're expecting a top of 29 for Penrith, Liverpool and Parramatta. 28 in Campbelltown.

Looking ahead - Sunday will be a much nicer day with those winds easing. Sunny with a top of 23. But it will warm up again on Monday. Sunny and 28. Then we could see some late rain on Tuesday after a very hot day with a chance those showers will continue into Wednesday morning. And temperatures will stay in the mid-20s for the rest of the week. Our west will be sunny and 26 on Sunday, a very warm 31 on Monday, then a very hot day and night on Tuesday with a chance of overnight rain. Cooling down a little on Wednesday but top temperatures will stay in the mid to late 20s for the rest of the week.Thank you very much. That is nine news for this Friday.
