WITH the exception of Sydneysiders, the weather forecast this summer won't add to the holiday cheer of most Australians.

Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Hobart can expect to be hotter and mostly drier, compounding the threat of bushfires.

Storm-hit Brisbane will be wetter and cooler than usual while tropical north Queensland will swelter in unusually high temperatures with less rain.

Having had a summer pregnancy before, and with previous predictions saying SE Australia was going to cop it hot this year, its nice to see that it should actually be "average" for Sydney.

What a interesting mixed bag though for the rest of the country...... Anyone know how accurate these forecasts usually are?

Hmm brisbane will be wetter & cooler than usual.

Given the last couple of summers have been mild in comparison to what they usually are, then it will be interesting.

The rain forecast is totally boo hoo - though as long as it doesn't flood i shouldn't have anything to complain about.
