Temperatures across the North Island and especially in Auckland and Northland will be significantly higher today than they were last week thanks to a warm northerly.
Yesterday Cape Reinga reached 19 while Auckland only made it to 14. Today, however, rain clouds are clearing early to the south followed by plenty of blue skies.
With sunnier weather combined with northerlies temperatures are likely to reach the late teens for northern New Zealand over the next few days.
This morning is significantly warmer too – as of 7am it was already 16 degrees in Auckland and 14 in Tauranga.
It was 14 degrees at Mystery Creek for the start of Fieldays – a full 18 degrees warmer than this time last week.

Hey Andy, I think the met service have forgotten you. I was thru Thames yesterday and there was surface flooding in Thames as well. The dessert road was less inviting and rains followed me through that as well. Feilding had only light spits and a shower or two during the later part of the day.. No winds to speak of.
10/6/09 In Palmerston North steady rain for most of the morning. Midday has seen fine spells with the weaken sun trying to ease out amongst the clouds. Gentle breeze, and a little cooler. Around 12 or 13 deg. Traffic flows steady.

Thought I’d let you know that it’s been raining on the majority of Coromandel Peninsula’s eastern side almost non-stop since Monday night. No exact figures for you but it’s definately been persistent! The highway out of Whitianga towards Tairua is currently flooded, and there’s a lot of water on the ground around Hikuai, the Tairua river looks pretty full too. All this and no warnings or information from Metservice, just a watch for Bay of Plenty. Looks like we’re going to get some heavy stuff on Friday too… things may get a little messy!
