Darwin - Recent December Temperatures and Rainfall





The numbers here describe what the December weather in Darwin, Northern Territory Australia was like for every year since 2010. A series of tables gives December data by year for temperature and precipitation.

They begin with average maximum and minimum temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius. That's followed by how many hot days occurred each December. Then there's information on how much rain actually landed this month during recent years, as well as how often Darwin had wet weather.

The climate data come from weather measurements made at Darwin Airport.
