Weather forecast for Vivid Sydney and A-League Men grand final

Ben Domensino, Friday May 24, 2024 - 12:31 AEST

The forecast is looking good for a big weekend of events in Sydney and the Central Coast, with plenty of dry weather, clear skies and even a full moon for the opening nights of Vivid and the A-League Men’s grand final.

Vivid Sydney kicks off on Friday evening and will run for three weeks from May 24 until June 15. This annual festival of captivating light projections, art, food and music, now in its 14th year, is expected to draw huge crowds to the Sydney CBD in the coming weeks.

The opening night and weekend of Vivid Sydney are likely to be dry and cool this year. While there is a slight chance of light showers along the Sydney coast on the weekend, these showers will most likely stay offshore. Temperatures will be around 12 to 16°C in Sydney for the first few nights of Vivid this year.

One thing in the night sky that might catch the attention of Vivid light-gazers over the next few nights will be a bright full moon. The moon will rise between 5pm and 7pm from Friday to Sunday, offering savvy photographers a chance to capture the rising full moon and Vivid Sydney’s light displays in the same frame.

This Saturday night will also be busy up the coast as Gosford hosts the A-League Men’s grand final between the Central Coast Mariners and Melbourne Victory, with kick off at 7:45pm.

This will be the first time the Central Coast has hosted the grand final and the second year in a row to feature the Mariners in the penultimate game of the season. The sold-out game will draw a big crowd to Industree Group Stadium and a live viewing site at the nearby Gosford Leagues Club Park.

While many of this season’s A-League Men’s games have been wet, the grand final is expected to be dry with only a small chance of showers before and during the game.
