Newshub's very first festive forecast has shone a light straight from above on Christmas Day. 

While the final points of the forecast won't reveal themselves until days before Christmas, Newshub's Alex O'Hara says nine days out, it's all looking sunny side up for our main centres. 

Auckland is forecast to have a sweltering 26 degrees, while Wellington and Dunedin have 23 and 24 degrees respectively.

All places are forecast to have a dry day, with temperatures as warm as 29 degrees hitting Christchurch in the South Island.
