Weather update

LOOKS like the scorching searing hot weather will continue throughout with Christmas Eve being the first day according to the weather forecasts to rain - with a high temperature of 25.
Weather predicted for Christmas Day is a cloudy day with a high of 21. First predictions of more than just a drizzle are for Wednesday, 28 December.
