The Daily Debrief- MONDAY

Much of the country topped the 20 degree mark with the exception of a few centres in the west and south of the mainland.Temperatures were on a par with yesterday for most centres.

Tonight looks as if there shouln’t be too much out of the ordinary with temperatures about where they should be overnight, for this time of year.

Tomorrow a southerly should skirt up the eastern part of the North Island with a few showers and hopefully it shouldn’t impact too much on the cricket in Napier ( famous last words!)

Elsewhere the cooler air will be felt in southern and central regions with the skies clearing.Further north, generally settled conditions should prevail with temperatures in the low to mid 20s.

The high today went to the Bay once more with Napier and Hastings sharing 29 degrees and the low was 15 in Gore.

The visitor is clearly confused by the fact that NIWA deals with climate archiving, not MetService.

We recently enjoyed a wonderful first visit to New Zealand and kept a daily diary of our experiences. Keeping a daily record of the weather proved more difficult and this is the only site I have been able to find that provides me with this much needed information. Surprising that even your national weather service doesn’t have an archive section.

Hi Ian,

Thanks for your message.

There are some sites that have records with data spanning over 80 years for a number of centres and regions in the country but little on a day to day basis in terms of maximum temperatures recorded, that we’re aware of.

We will keep you posted here with our nationwide weather and hope you can come back to our shores again soon!

Best Wishes

The WeatherWatch team

Well today Tuesday here we had a high of 26.3c here in Northcote


Couldn’t post this under Today Temp readings……

Andrew on 2/03/2009 4:01am

Well it continues to be warm here and 27.1c seems like summer is refusing to say goodbye to us….

Guys don’t worry too much about your forcast on the weekend… Its hard when this system drifted slighty further East than expected… You guys at weatherwatch do a fantastic job and Please keep warning us like you did on Saturday. We needed the warnings and it doesn’t matter that it moved away from us….

Thanks again Guys….

Hi guys,
just letting you know that I am based in Takapuna, and may start logging in our temperatures here – to give a better indictation of the temps in auckland (and north shore especially). These can be compared to the northcote temp’s as well!
Too be honest, I am sick of the so called ‘official’ temperatures auckland get on the metservice sites & weather on the news.
cheers 😀

Fantastic!  We look forward to reading your temps and other weather observations from Takapuna.
