Christmas 2016 is shaping up to be warmer than last year according to Weatherzone’s forecast as of late December 22.
Christmas Eve is currently in line to be mostly sunny and reach 38 degrees with a 50% chance of rain whilst Christmas Day is expected to be sunny with a expected maximum temperature of 39 degrees.
If it gets to 39 degrees, it will be five degrees hotter than last year and it will be more of the same on Boxing Day with 40 degrees predicted but the good news so far is that cloud will be increasing on Boxing Day and there is a 90% chance of 1 to 5mm of rain falling.
Winds for all three days are expected to be reasonably low with the mornings expected to be the most windy points of the day but it will be picking up on Boxing Day.
Unfortunately for locals, Maximum temperatures are not expected to drop below 36 until at least December 29 so make sure residents that you and your pets are well hydrated.
These temperature predictions can change as weather forecasts always do and we’ll do our best to keep you updated by updating this story if the maximums rise or fall and if rain is coming or going.
