Nelson number one for the sun

Nelson has regained its title as the sunshine capital of the country.

The city clocked up 2571 hours last year, 31 hours ahead of Tauranga’s 2540, according to Niwa’s provisional figures.

2008 winner Blenheim came in third with 2466 hours, but the figure for September 21 was missing because of an instrument problem.

NIWA Climate scientist Andrew Tait said that would not make a difference to the top three placings.
