Loc: Artarmon (Sydney North Shore)
Thanks for posting those interesting pictures Ben.
Perfect Christmas weather today, clear blue skies, warm but not too hot or humid (27-32 across Sydney). It!s now ckear, mild and seabreezy.
Hope everyone has had / is having a great Christmas, I just got back from Christmas with family on the Central Coast.
Looks like quite a warm spell coming up, seven consecutive 29+ at OH, seven days of 35+ at Penrith, peaking at 38 / 43 at OH/Penrith on the 29th and 30th. About the same in the Illawarra coastal plain, even hotter in the Hunter. It looks set to end on New Years Day when we seem to switch to a more humid pattern. We might then need a rain thread, but that's ages away.
I'll start a heat thread tomorrow after I look at the updated models (although anyone else feel free to start one).

Its gotten really windy on the beaches, gusts to 52km/h at the airport at almost 11pm. I'll throw in my 2 cents that we'll get a sea gale tomorrow. Bit skeptical about the 38C forecast for Thurs with an E/NE'er but then again I have been wrong recently See what happens
