BoM Says All Of ‘Straya Will Enjoy “Best Possible Weather” To Ring In 2016

As the annual eve of peak debauchery grows nearer, some good news on the weather front: it’s going to be picture-fucking-perfect right across the country, from now until them fireworks get poppin’.

Our forecasting friends over at the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) predict a 10/10 night, with the shittest of the national weather bound for Darwin – and even that’s not bad, with an afternoon storm expected to clear up well before you’re wiping vomit off your chin at 9pm.

Chatting with P.TV, duty senior forecaster Robert Kruisheer said things couldn’t look much better as we shut the door on 2015.

“If you’re going to be out and about, it looks like it’s going to be a very nice evening for BBQs with friends and drinks with a view. The conditions also mean that it’s the optimal setting for enjoying the fireworks display.

It’s pretty dry at the moment, so Sydney will see a bit of high cloud but nothing in the medium levels of the atmosphere so there shouldn’t be anything to obstruct the fireworks. And winds aren’t very strong, so I’d imagine you’ll see a lot of the smoke clearing out after the fireworks, which is good; previous years it’s been light on wind, which means it’s very misty after they go off and doesn’t look the nicest.

All things considered, it’s the best possible weather outcome for tonight. It ticks all the boxes.”
