Poll: Have you had a dip yet?

With Summer just a week away(!), we here at Weatherwatch wanted to know how many of our readers have been in the water yet this Spring.

With warm temperatures and sunny days through much of November, particularly in the North Island, beachgoers have been seen swimming all through the month – and we wanted to know if this is a nationwide phenomena.

So let us know in the poll, and tell us where you’re from in the comments, and we’ll get a better idea of what conditions on the beaches and riversides are like around the country.


Have you been for a swim yet?
