Meteorologists have released their predictions for what the weather will be like on Christmas Day. According to Weatherzone, they have compared the different computer models used to predict the weather to come up with a possible forecast. However, Ben Domensino, the company’s meteorologist, warned that making predictions beyond a certain amount of days should be considered with a grain of salt.
According to Mr. Domensino, making long-range weather predictions is usually useless due to the uncertainty of the data. Instead, they should look for patterns that can be predicted in various areas. For instance, on Thursday, the company used three different weather models to predict the possible temperatures and rainfall across the country.
Various trends have emerged regarding the possibility of rain falling on the eastern and northern coast on Christmas Day. However, there is still a lot of disagreement regarding the exact amount of rain that will fall on the holiday. According to the different models, heavy rain could affect the central and northern regions of the country.
Out of the three models, two of them predict that the temperatures in Western Australia’s northwest region will reach 40 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, the weather in the country’s southeast will be cool. Mr. Domensino noted that it’s unlikely that any city in the country will experience temperatures over 40 degrees on Christmas Day.
According to Mr. Domensino, the forecast for Perth would be a relief for those who spent Christmas in the city last year. In December, the temperature in the city reached 42.8 degrees Celsius, which was the hottest recorded temperature in Australia.
