Today’s maximum was 31C here so Chch would of deifinately hit the 30C mark.
If not there’s something wrong somewhere?

After a great start here in Whangarei clouds rolled in and kept the temps down plus the easterly is not helping, so not bad but coolish in the open. Pretty much a ditto day from yesterday.
Ok for working though and no rain so that’s good enough for me. Easterlies are never kind to our location in the city and I hope they soon disappear.

A few of the people who comment here mention they have home weather stations, maybe not the full kit but just temp/humidity and pressure, I am thinking along those lines myself and would appreciate some guidance on which brand does the job best.
There are a few around varying in price with wireless sensor units giving the above data so I want to get it right by getting a good reliable, not too excy unit.

Maybe you can give me some pointers yourselves also, much appreciated.
