It's about this time of year that we look to the future and wonder what the weather will be like for Christmas Day …

Luckily we have trawled through MetService, so you don’t have to!

It seems like the South Island is the place you want to be for a sunny Christmas, while many locations around the North Island are set to be cloudy and raining.

The good news is North Islanders get to wear their ugly Christmas sweaters inside …

Check out the full forecast for December 25 … fingers crossed is fines up a bit before now and the big day!
