Christmas Day Weather 2021
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, we can expect a wet and soggy December, but does that mean it’s all grey skies and rain clouds come the 25th?
While experts have advised that this summer will be wetter than usual, we’ve looked around the country on AccuWeather and rounded up what each major city can anticipate for Christmas.
For Sydneysiders, the week leading up to Christmas will be marked by several hot days with tops of 31°C expected, before dipping down to an average of of 22°C towards the end of the month. While Christmas Eve is expected to be partly cloudy with temperatures of 29°, Christmas Day is set to be reasonably cooler reaching a max of 23°C.
Down in Melbourne, the forecast certainly looks a lot brighter, with the showers in sight narrowly avoiding Christmas Day. AccuWeather claims December 25 is set to be full of sunshine with temperature sitting at a balmy 30°C. Pure bliss.
Hobart is expecting to look a lot more like Sydney, with a high of 23°C estimated for Christmas Day. While there may be some low clouds, there is a low probability of precipitation followed by increasing cloud cover in the afternoon.
Over in Central Australia, Adelaide and Darwin can expect sunshine on Christmas Day, with temperatures sitting at 31°C and 33°C respectively, with Darwin encountering a couple of thunderstorms throughout the day.
While the weather may be mostly sunny and warm, Darwin can expect some don’t forget to stay protected from UV rays, even if you’re planning on staying inside.
On the West Coast, Perth can expect a full day of sunshine with tops of 27°C.
In Brisbane, you can expect a day of sunshine and patchy clouds. Although there will be a chance of showers, the temperature will be sitting at a lush 29°C.
We will caveat that these forecasts are subject to change and given the unpredictability of La Niña, we highly recommend keeping an eye on the weather in the lead up to the big day. Oh, and always have a wet weather contingency plan. Always.
While it won’t be the hot girl summer of our dreams, the weather will still allow for some yuletide festivities. In the (Christmas) spirit of ensuring we’re well prepped for the occasion, we’ve rounded up below fashion ideas and outfit inspiration that are La Niña approved.
