Mild Christmas Day for Canberra

Press Release, Thursday December 11, 2008 - 15:56 EDT

Canberra can expect a partly cloudy Christmas Day according to weatherzone.com.au with a high of 24 degrees.

"The forecast will be updated daily on weatherzone.com.au but at this stage Christmas Day looks partly cloudy in Canberra with a likely temperature range of 11 to 24 degrees, two below average for December. However the lead up to Christmas looks a little warmer with temperatures close to average until about the 23rd," weatherzone.com.au meteorologist Thomas Saunders said.

"It should be a little warmer than last year when Canberra reached just 22 degrees on Christmas Day," said Saunders.

Canberra's hottest Christmas Day on record was in 1957 when the mercury reached 37 degrees. The coldest was 15 degrees in 1947.
