CHRISTMAS DAY: What to expect here, there and everywhere
IT'S good news for the south east of Queensland, as Christmas Day is shaping up to be a cracker.
Hot, sunny weather is widespread right across the region and Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Aditi Sharan says Queenslanders shouldn't be worried about anything but enjoying their Christmas Day.
"There is the chance of showers and storms in the south east of Queensland,” she said.
"But they mostly later happen in the later afternoon and evening and shouldn't affect plans during the day.
"Any showers that do happen will be isolated so it will be luck of the draw as to who gets any rain, if at all.”
Warwick will see a hot Christmas Day.
"Temperatures will reach 36 on Monday,” Miss Sharan said.
"It won't be windy but there will be a north-easterly breeze, which explains the warm temperatures.
"Warwick will see a 70percent chance of showers and storms in the later afternoon, but it will all depend on where you are and where the showers actually fall.”
Boxing Day will see a wind change, shifting to a south-easterly, which will see temperatures drop into the mid to high 20s before climbing again through the week.
