The Isle of Wight Weather Centre's SANTA TRACKER 2019

The local weather service's senior meteorologist

David Carrington will track Father Christmas over the UK and IOW on Christmas Eve. 

Christmas Eve (24th December) 19:00 - 21:00

The local weather expert gives up his family time on Christmas Eve to track Santa on his long journey over the UK and Isle of Wight. “In total it takes 3 hours to help track Father Christmas on this very special night”.

It’s the weather centre’s 14th year spying on Santa and his loyal team of reindeer headed by Rudolf.

 The Santa Tracker can also be used by parents to help get little ones in to bed before Santa visits. “We all know that Santa won't stop unless he knows you are in bed fast asleep” says David. 

The website also offers a number of Christmas related pages including the naughty or nice list, North Pole weather plus Christmas colouring, project sleigh and the Santa files. This year we are collecting donations to help buy sleeping bags for the Islands rough sleepers (link available on the website). 

So don't forget to stop by on Christmas Eve, from 7pm A big thank you to L&S Digital as our sponsor.
