Christmas Day Weather

Making Outdoor Plans? Here's the Weather Forecast for Christmas Day

Christmas in Australia is marvellous — friends and family, fresh air, seafood feasts and rosé all day — but damn, the weather can be unpredictable.

When December 25 comes around we're well into the swing of Summer, so it's likely to be warm and humid — but will the sun be shining to accompany the heat, or will we have sticky rain to contend with? Before you lock in your outdoor plans, see below for the forecast around Australia. We'll update as we get nearer to the big day, too!


Highs around 25 degrees (though it usually gets to around to 30) and a low of 16. No rain expected — instead, our pals in Perth can expect "abundant sunshine."


Expected high of 35 degrees, with a low of 27. Cloud and humidity expected on the day, but no rain.
