Meanwhile, the east of the country has been experiencing the after effects of that airflow, with temperatures pushed higher in the east, both north and south.
This week, we wanted to know through our poll which season our readers FEEL like they’re in – because things are a little topsy-turvy in some parts of New Zealand.
The results were interesting indeed, with a big swing in votes towards “autumn” later in the week, after “spring” and “summer” were holding near parity before Wednesday.
Nearly half of all voters now think it feels like autumn, with the other half split between the two warmer seasons.
