It’s a hot day in eastern and south-eastern Australia while much of New Zealand has a cooler, windier, cloudy day.
The stark comparison is no surprise to New Zealanders after rare weekend frosts and heavy mountain snow in the South Island. In fact snow also fell on the North Island mountains.
Australia’s heatwave isn’t directly coming to New Zealand but a warmer airflow does look likely for many Kiwi’s – especially in the east – over the next week or two.
