If the forecast comes to pass, the city will be basking in temperatures of 28 degrees or above from Saturday until at least Thursday next week.
And that will include a 31-degree Boxing Day that, if it eventuates, will be equal to Bathurst's hottest day of this year (on January 2).
As the city prepares for a run of heat, the short, cold, single-digit days of winter couldn't seem further away.
Which is why the Western Advocate has collected a few snow photos from this year to remind Bathurst of what it's left behind.
The snow that settled up the top of Mount Panorama on Wednesday morning, June 1 was a most appropriate way to mark the start of winter 2022.
It was then bookended by snow in the district's high country at the end of August as part of a weather system that caused problems on the roads and the Blue Mountains train line.
And in between time? There was the -5.8 degree day on July 30 that was the city's coldest minimum this year and the 7 degree day on July 13 that was the city's coldest maximum this year.
After being tested by winter days like those, Bathurst deserves its summer.
