It has been really dark here all day, thunder, lightning , torrential rain.

Of course, I had been told by numerous people it was going to be 40 plus degrees, and the be perfectly honest, I am glad I haven't had to listen to those same people complain all day about the heat  biggrin.gif .

Yikes that is cold!! It is about 32 today but feels hotter. We all just had an afternoon sleep in our room with the air con on. Was lovely.

Rain, rain and more rain.

Sydney here.

Such a change from the last few days where it has been hot and sunny.

Oh BadCat, I want to be wherever you are.   I crave a decent cold (preferably with snow, but will take any alternative that is at a reasonable temperature e.g. 18 or under) Christmas.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas. original.gif

I confess I'd much rather 16 than 40.  I don't function in 40 degree weather.

About 2 or 3 degrees warmer would be nice though.  Lucky we didn't have any outdoor plans today.

It's been a lovely christmas day whatever the weather.  original.gif

I'm from the UK and all my family are there. The weather has made me feel mighty homesick today.
When it's 30+ degrees on Christmas Day, homesickness doesn't affect me so much.

We had about 20 and it was perfect, I wouldn't have wanted it to be any hotter.

If I had the choice between 16 and 40, I'd be picking 16, who wants to eat Christmas pudding in the heat?

It's a pleasant 28C in Brisbane with low (for us) humidity in the 50% range. We need fans on but we don't immediately start melting and sweating if we move away from the fans. It was predicted to be 39C at my parents' place but it has been about 33C so I'm guessing that Mum and Dad have been very happy about that.

I can't imagine a 16C Christmas. I'm much more used to 35 to 40C, and sweating everywhere. At least Mum and Dad have air conditioning now.

Absolutely. DS got flippers for his new boogie board (which he had managed to con from us 3 days early)

He was dying to use them, we went down the beach at about 4, it was still freezing, but there were 2 diehard dads in with three amazing tiny kids on proper surf boards. So DS did get to use his flippers.

I have enjoyed the cold Sydney day despite the fact that I love a hot day. It has meant a quieter day then usual so less stress!

12 here - but I prefer it to the heat.

#14 Julie3Girls

It's been around 18 here, wet and stormy all afternoon. It's actually been a lovely day, although it would have been nice to have been warm enough to swim.

Oooh I will take the 16 degrees anyday!!! I am not a summer person...and it was 44.8 here today sad.gif

Weathr was perfect here in Brissie.  I don't think it cracked 30, but perfect to spend by the pool.  Only complaint was a bit too much chop on the bay late in the arvo, so we postponed our planned lazy cruise around the bay until early tomorrow, but can't complain too much.

Its been cloudy, but dry here all day.

Weather bureau claim it got up to 17.8 C in Canberra - that translates about 2 degrees colder for us. And yes, it was decidedly brrrr. But fabulous for having a ROAST DINNER, yummmm!!!!!!

Jealous! I hate the heat. Brisbane is anything but pleasant for me today Paddlepop I am suffering.

We had a perfect day here in Tas today - warm to hot (by our standards) with a nice breeze to cool down with occasionally. Hopefully nobody was caught out with sunburn.

I am a summer lover/beachy sort and will always take heat over cold (probably the ONLY expat in history who didn't complain about the weather in Singapore)...and we had a shocker of a day in NSW.

Bring back the sunshine...please!

I enjoyed the cooler weather today.  ds and nephew played in the rain a little, but other than that the kids were fine with playing inside

22 degrees and dry today. Perfect to sit outside for lunch, warm enough to need the umbrella up but cool enough to eat a roast, Xmas pudding and jump on the new trampoline.

Glad it wasn't hot since our aircon has died and is unfixable.

We're in Perth so around 40C here today and the same expected for the rest of the week.

I would feel so out of place if it was cold on Christmas day!
