Hi Bill,
Actually the weather is all over the place here at the moment as is pretty typical for this time of year.
We've just had about a week of high winds and temperatures in the mid-90's, this has made life a nightmare for the fire service here with power lines being bought down by trees and starting fires all over the place.

This morning though, we had rain and thunder-storms.
Tomorrow (Christmas day) is forecast to be fine with temperatures in the mid to high 90's.
