Press Release

Mostly sunny Christmas Day for Sydney

11/12/2008: Sydney can look forward to a partly cloudy and warm Christmas Day according to weatherzone.com.au with a maximum temperature of around 26 degrees.

"The forecast will be updated daily on our website but at this stage we are expecting a fairly average day for December with a likely temperature range of 16 to 26 for the city, but perhaps a little warmer in western suburbs," weatherzone.com.au meteorologist Thomas Saunders said.

"It should be quite a bit warmer than last year when Sydney reached only 20 degrees on Christmas Day, five below average," said Saunders.

Sydney's hottest Christmas Day on record was in 1868 when the city sweltered to 39 degrees. The coldest was 18 degrees in 1962.
