Hot across the north, but not the south

Hot weather is going to continue across the country today but cool conditions are set to return to the South Island’s southern and eastern coastlines tomorrow with highs only in the mid to upper teens.

The continuation of miserable summer weather seems set in stone for Invercargill, Dunedin and Christchurch despite the odd hot day in between.

And despite Wellington reaching the mid 20s on Saturday during the 7s the highs over the next couple of days will only be around 20 degrees.

Inland parts of the South Island, mainly Central Otago and inland Canterbury, are likely to see the hot summer weather continuing – as will northern and inland parts of the North Island with temperatures in the mid to late 20s.

Eastern parts of the North Island are also going to remain relatively cool, around the low to mid 20s after temperatures soared over 30 back in December.

Humidity around Waikato, Auckland and Northland will create ‘feels like’ temperatures around the low 30s this week.

Overnight lows in the north will also be high, around the late teens or 20 degree mark for the next couple of nights.

Here in Invercargill, we can’t complain about the last few weeks at all and although it’s cloudy and cooler today, it’s hardly ‘miserable’

I am thinking of asking for a refund for the so called summer down here! But who do i ask? 🙂
