It’s quite common to see wild differences between coastal observations and inland ones.  Hamilton and Tokoroa are quite a distance from the sea, Auckland on the other hand is surrounded by two seperate bodies of water.

Wellington has a similar set up…Upper Hutt can be considerably colder than Wellington airport (which is surrounded by the sea).

At our place in Whangarei it was 2 deg at 7am with a nice but not heavy frost, much warmer than those others I read but still felt the cold.
Beaut sunshine and blue sky so far but hope that cold South or SW does not blow as hard as yesterday.
