    In a plane headed north.
    I predict it'll be far too hot prior to take off and then far too cold and dry once airborne.

    Last Christmas I was considering doing some turns on the NSW mainrange.

    Instead I settled for making a snowman

    Christmas lunch this year is at my place, so I'll have to forgo the banquet on top of Mt Kosci

    With the family in Brighton.
    Weather is the same every year.
    22 deg, cloudy in the morning and a bit windy and everyone saying its never nice on Xmas day.
    Sun will come out in the arvo and be lovely, everyone forgets this because of to much indulgence during lunch.


    Happens every year

    Perth is usually OK on Xmas day, and then turns on the heat for Boxing day.
    OK in perth being low 30's.

    I'm in melbs and it will be a cool grey morn giving way to lovely partially clear afternoon!
    and i will be grumpy about not being able to sleep in :(

    The joke is that whenever its in Wollongong it rains.

    In land its a scorcher!

    And last time it was in Jindy we had the slip and slide out!

    Last year for me was a 6.5 hour drive from Shepparton to Traralgon (should be 4.5 hours but Melbourne lunchtime traffic). Both sides were typical of that time of year. Shepparton warm and dry, Traralgon cloudy and slightly damp.

    Fortunately it will only be a Wallan to Traralgon drive this year, and I'm expecting low 20's and partly cloudy as per usual. Warming up to low to mid 30s over New Year's (also typical).

    I predict that I will see silly people doing silly things all over town on christmas eve. Something happens to many peoples brains - they just turn into crazies.
    On christmas morning we will be on the beach for swim, surf and breakfast, then home for a long afternoon of family, food and beverage.

    26 degree max for Perth!

    That's the chilliest Christmas we've had in a while.

    In fact...all of December has been mild. Not that I'm complaining!!! :thumbs:

    Manly still pumping now - iPhone pics won't do it justice but a very nice left bank into the corner at S Steyne. The odd fat one off Manly point, even the odd one out Bower.....still a good 3-4 foot on the sets
