What­ever the weather

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

What­ever the weather, Cen­tral Otago and the Lakes District are stun­ning spots to visit. This photo shows Lake Dun­stan near Clyde Dam.

It’s go­ing to be sunny with a chance of sun, sun and more sun in the lead up to, and af­ter, Christ­mas!

Slip, slop, slap and wrap and get ready for some warm rays head­ing our way!

Queen­stown will start off the fes­tive sea­son with a high of 20 de­grees on Christ­mas Eve, with fine weather and westerly breezes, low­er­ing to eight de­grees over night.

On Christ­mas Day you will then be treated to a high of 21 de­grees be­fore scorchers on Box­ing Day and De­cem­ber 27 with 30 de­grees on both days.

This then tapers off to 28 de­grees on the Monday, and rain on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day with still a bit of heat in that sun.

Wanaka will be equally as lucky with high dou­ble dig­its set­ting off the fes­tive sea­son to­day, fol­lowed by 23 de­grees on Christ­mas Eve, 25 de­grees on Christ­mas Day, and steadily ris­ing to 30 be­fore low­er­ing to 29 and 28 the fol­low­ing days.

You may re­ceive a bit of rain mid week postChrist­mas but that won’t dampen your spirit with the tem­per­a­ture still reach­ing 25 and 21 de­grees re­spec­tively.

Alexan­dra res­i­dents and vis­i­tors will also be in need of a sun hat and sun­screen, with Christ­mas Eve reach­ing 23 de­grees, Christ­mas Day hit­ting 24, and reach­ing a high for the week on Sun­day with 26 de­grees.

Rain is set to roll in on Tues­day De­cem­ber 29, and will con­tinue at this stage into Wed­nes­day with light wind as well.

The cur­rent fire sea­son struc­ture is as fol­lows:
