Dust Off The Slip N Slide, The Christmas Day Forecast Is Predicting A Pearler

Folks! It’s now under a week until Christmas Day, and while your last-minute preparations might be stressful and hectic, the day itself is looking like it’ll be cracking open the china hutch and breaking out the good weather for the occasion.

The Bureau of Meteorology has unveiled their first round of weather forecasts for next Tuesday, and all across the country it’s looking like glorious sunshine and warm temperatures will be greeting festive revellers after Santa makes his rounds in the night.

December 25th is shaping as a fairly ideal day across all major Australian cities (except Darwin, soz mates) with forecasts of clear skies and sunny days that should have all of you feeling particularly keen to dive head-first into an esky.

Melbourne, glorious Melbourne, is set to cop a beautiful mostly sunny day of 29 degrees on the holy Santa day, with the forecasted chance of rain at virtually zero percent.

Sydney is similarly set for a ripper one, thanks to a sunny day with a predicted top of 27.

Brisbane is the only Australian city (non-Darwin division) set to cop anything closely resembling the rough end of a stick, with the QLD capital’s Christmas Day forecast calling for a partly cloudy day of 29, with a 20% chance of a light shower here and there.

Perth and Adelaide on the other hand? Balls-out weather glory all damned day. Both cities are set for sunny days with zero percent chance of rain, topping the mercury out at 34 and 35 degrees respectively.

Hobart is set to cook under the harsh Tasmanian sun with a partly cloudy day calling for a high of 24, which is the mainland equivalent of about 38.

Finally Canberra, our nation’s capital, has arguably the most ideal Christmas Day weather forecast of all: Sunny. 5% chance of rain. Maximum of 32 degrees. Absolutely bloody glorious.

Darwin, however, is a little different. But all things considered for the top end it ain’t too bad: A shower or two, a possible storm, a muggy 34 degrees max. Standard December behaviour really.

Get the bags of ice and start chilling the festive frothies, dear friends. Santa Claus is bloody comin’.
