Temps cut in half

Dunedin managed 27 degrees this morning with a very warm nor’ wester but now a strong sou’ wester has hit the city and it’s plummeted to 13 degrees. 

Ahead of the cool change, temperatures are certainly high in eastern areas as the rain continues to tumble in the west. Oamaru is now 29 degrees which is rather impressive before midday, during the month of November.

Fair comment – although in NZ it’s generally assumed that in November zero would probably be as cold as it gets.  While not ‘technically’ not correct the public would ‘get’ the jist of the headline.
