Christmas Day Weather Australia 2018

Here's How the Weather is Shaping Up for Christmas Day

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - DECEMBER 22:  Santa Claus arrives aboard a surf rescue inflatable at Sydney's Bondi Beach 22 December where the tradition of volunteer surf lifesaving began in 1903.

For Australians, Christmas day is usually more barbecues and the beach than it is hot chocolates and fireplaces. But, with the way the weather is shaping up for most capital cities come December 25, we may just get the chance to bust out our best ugly Christmas jumpers. According to AccuWeather, almost every capital city is set to experience either rain or cloud, or even both, in the cases of Darwin and Brisbane. The only cities safe from the unseasonal gloom are Perth and Adelaide, which can both look forward to "abundant sunshine." Regardless of the forecast for the city you're in, it's almost guaranteed it won't dampen the fun. Those in Perth and Adelaide can look forward to a typical Aussie Christmas, while people in well, everywhere else, can get a taste of a European Christmas. Just without the snow, sadly.
