POLL RESULTS: Kiwis happy with warm start to May

We’ve seen some very unusual temperatures hang around for the start of May – with summer conditions sticking around in many places – and overnight highs in the early to mid 20s this past week!

Warm air is being funneled down from the Tropics as weather systems bring northerly winds, and high temperatures are resulting in far less snow on the country’s skifields as a result.

Most New Zealanders, however, seem to be relatively happy with the situation – as 77% of those who voted in our latest poll saying they are ‘enjoying’ the highs, while a little over 20% say it’s ‘not helping’.

The high temperatures look set to stick around for at least the next few days, as summer totals cling on well into May.
