The temperatures around the nation continued their climb for the second day running and although it wasn’t dry and sunny for all of us, at least there was a bit of respectability returning to the figures!
18 degrees was the warmest spot and Canterbury claimed it, with Culverden getting there earlier this afternoon. Just Murchison with 4 degrees and Milford Sound with 8 felt any cool air this afternoon and North Island centres ranged from 12 degrees at Taupo to a very pleasant crop of 17s in Kaitaia, Russell, Paihia and Whakatane.
Tonight as the cloud band begins to spread across the country, temperatures should be a little above average and in some cases by 4 or 5 degrees, thanks to the Northwesterly airflow moving in.
Tomorrow, it will feel springlike in eastern and also some northern regions with temps in the high teens although the winds maybe gusty at times.
