So New Year is Wednesday but the PH is Thursday to make a long weekend. I think that means Tuesday evening is dry and after 7 Wednesday is BAU? EDIT: Just read that the hotels had already been told Weds night is dry, BAU Thursday.

I have that showing as 24th December, so it would be dry evening of 23rd to evening of 24th December.

That's what I thought, but not what the hotels are being told apparently.

I would love it if it was dry. Doesn't affect me either way, just like to ruin people's Christmas.

Call me the Grinch.

Pretty sure the Prophet's Birthday will be 23rd or 24th. So Xmas Day is very unlikely to be dry.

Well, it's single source, but a very good one with no real reason to make it up.
