The coming Christmas Weather!

Merry Christmas to all.

Tasmania, Australia can have odd weather in the summertime due to it's location.  There can be 4 seasons in the one day.  Many people have the idea that our summers are cold, well far from it most years.
The Christmas forecast is in the photo below with Christmas Day temperature predicted to be 30 degC, (86 F)with some cities being 40 degC (104 F).  So for those who live in the Northern Hemisphere just think of us down here cooking Christmas Dinner or heading for the shade to have a barbecue or a big shady old tree on Christmas Day, whilst most of you 'might' have snow outside!





Tasmania is 68,332 square kilometres (26,383 square miles) in area. The distance from north to south is about 364 kilometres (226 miles), and from east to west about 306 kilometres (190 miles). It is about the same size as Ireland, Switzerland or the state of West Virginia in the USA.

  3. Add five degrees for our temperature on Christmas Day. At least having Christmas at home, means we will be cool. We are not afraid to use our air conditioner, hard.

  4. You didn't mention that it is an awesome state, that once someone goes there they will want to go back again and again, I want to go back again and hopefully I will be able to convince Tim to go back again next year.

  5. I always think that Tasmania seems like a lovely place. I always regret not having made it there when I visited Australia in 1999. I doubt I will get back there again...but who knows?

    1. So many tourists visit Tasmania for many reasons, so much to see. You never know one day you might get here, it's a long way from where you live.

    How would you like to be in Adelaide, or out west in mainland Australia.
    Seems that Brisbane will be the coolest capital on Christmas day!!!!
    That would have to be a first.

  10. I think our SA Christmas is expected to be a bit hotter and there are fire bans all over the place so a lot of people can't have their solid fuel barbecues going, but gas and electric ones are apparently okay.
    Merry Christmas!
