Thanks Jason, yes Merry Xmas to all.
I've planned to stay at home this Xmas/NewYear period and work which is not so bad after as the Long Range Weather Charts show this unsettled weather is very likely to continue.
I'm sure there will be one or two sunny days over the holiday spell so enjoy. :D

Saturday 25th December has GFS maps show clearing showers over much of the nation as a RIDGE builds.
:D :D :D :D :D

While this is still 12 days away, an incoming high pressure zone is likely.
Hopefully this sticks!! ;)

Boxing day looks heaps better.

hmm my forecast I have out on the 13th Dec looks kinda correct...
GFS rocks! \:D/

Best wishes to all. My Christmas moment would have to be 2002 up the top of a step ladder Christmas Afternoon (full of turkey and wine) in a NW gale trying in vain to tie shade cloth onto wires in our shade house while the gales were ripping it away from my hands, away from the wires, and blowing it towards the coast. :shock:

Merry xmas everyone! :)

Off to bed!

I do remember one year when I was a kid, I used to live up Kennedies Bush Rd. We had an open fire place and I got up early one Christmas morning, and I heard a hohoho come down the chimney. Some years later I was to relise the wind was blowing across the chimney top like if you blow across the opening of a bottel so no it wasn't santa but at the time I actually thought it was! Now I know better! ;)

Have a good one. 8)

I hope everyone has a very happy and safe Christmas where ever you are, take it easy especially if you are driving anywhere. I lost a good friend 2 years ago on boxing day due to driver fatigue.

Edit - hmmm look what santa left me ;) :

The best xmas present today was in Oamaru... woke to beautiful sun. A wonderful day with family & food.

I hope you all had a great day and kept safe.

Merry Xmas. Oh, and the best Christmas Craker joke of the day goes to my signature...
There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.
