30s top off blazing day

Parts of the country sizzled today with temperatures topping 33 degrees.Kaikoura was the hottest centre but Palmerston North and Gisborne weren’t too far behind on 31 and Masterton scored 30.

Humidity levels were high across many northern centres and it ‘felt’ hotter than the actual reading given.

Wanganui was 29 and Levin was hot on their heels with 28. Christchurch started off cloudy and cool but by later this afternoon, 27 was registered.

Tonight is another mild night on the cards for most of us and tomorrow more warm weather is expected across two thirds of the country but the deep south should see the coolest air once again.

Two possible reactions:

(1) Congratulations on achieving a temperature never before officially recorded in any part of the Taranaki, Wanganui, Manawatu or Wellington districts.

(2) Reality: Your setup is not proper and the value is well above anything sensible. This in the same family as the 40C claims for Hanmer, that pop up every summer.
