    Hottest Christmas day in over a decade
    Friday, 26 December 2003

    Yesterday was the hottest Christmas day in over a decade. A widespread area of the Hunter experienced temperatures in the mid to high 30's. Cessnock recorded the highest temperatures with the airport recording 40.0C and Nulkaba recording 40.5C. The weather for most of Christmas day was clear with most stations across the region reporting less then 2/8 cloud cover. Winds were generally light inland but was fresh on the coast in the afternoon due to the ENE seabreeze.

     

    Despite the high temperatures, no records were broken. The hottest temperature ever recorded in the Hunter on Christmas day is 45.6C, which was recorded in Jerrys Plains in 1957.
