Good thing Santa has expert taylors and the best quality clothing for his epic journey because once he gets to the West Coast of North America he might need everything he can get plus a snorkel too.

As you’ve no doubt seen by now we have a rainfall warning issued for us. This will be potentially flooding rain with over 100mm possible in 24hrs roughly over Thursday.

Luckily it will die down by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we might even see some sunny breaks.

After that we’re back to more rain next week as the pattern continues. Looks like there is no chance for any white stuff in the foreseeable future. We’ll need a major change in the weather pattern for that to happen… For now the east is getting all the cold… and it’s 30c above normal at Santas workshop near Alert.

This will likely be my last blog before Christmas barring something major happening.

I’d like to say thank you to all of you who visit the blog, it really makes me happy to think I’ve created something that people seem to enjoy and appreciate. This is Alberniweathers’ 5th year and it’s still growing… From only a handful of visits a day to over 200 a day these days.

Thank you.

From me and my family… A Merry Christmas to all of you and your families and the very best to you for the New Year.

May all your weather wishes come true. 😉
