The Daily Debrief – FRIDAY

Overall temperatures were high but not quite up to the mark of yesterday.Those in Hawkes Bay might argue that point as Napier hit 32 degrees and Hastings took 2nd spot with 30. Humidity made it feel much warmer than the actual readings in the north and that is likely to last another day too.

Temperatures were down over the South Island with no centre topping 30 but the mid to high 20s were commonplace.

The highest maximum temperature was 32 in Napier

The lowest maximum was Haast once more with 17.

Tonight is going to be another sticky night for many North Island areas with ma number of temperatures around the 18-20 degree mark and combined with humidity for some places, it will be an uncomfy night.

Nelson and Marlborough look as if temps will be a little above average as well but for the remainder of the mainland, cooler southerlies will bring the lows down to near 10 degrees and in some cases single figures by first thing in the morning.

Tomorrow much of the north will see some cloudy areas with a few showers possibly from time to time but Tauranga, Whakatane, parts of the Waikato and even Auckland could miss it all together-it’s quite patchy in the northeast. Humidity remains for some but it should cool off a little on Sunday as southeasterlies look to make an appearance. Out east a cool southerly should wind its way north tomorrow dropping those high temperatures of recent days and some liquid sunshine with the wind change.

Mainlanders should see a clearance on the West Coast tomorrow and sunny skies throughout Sunday. Some rain or showers are likely to tumble elsewhere but drier conditions for Sunday with temperatures a little below par and certainly down on what was experienced this week for much of the Island.

Yeah. Not so hot today because of the cloud cover but still quite warm here in Canterbury considering the consequences. Only 27 here, today.
The Sw has come through now, so back to cooler weather.
