Looks like a good time to be away from Sydney, with a headline in today's Sydney Morning Herald saying "Wild Christmas weather across Sydney"

In Richmond, north-west of Sydney, the temperature was 39C, then dropped five degrees in five minutes as the storm hit, dumping rain and hail.
With the perfect weather here in Dubai it's good to be here, but we're off to Singapore this evening, where we're told it hasn't rained for ages, which is unusual. It'll still be warm and humid though, I'm sure, it always is.
We haven't been there for quite a while so we're looking forward to it.
