I am totally over all these easterly, NE & SE winds, they have ruined summer here in Whangarei by keeping the temps down and being just a total pain in the butt.
Today we had an early shower but nothing since, all grey cloud around and SE is cool.

Hi Derek

Yes parts of Northland haven’t had the best summer due to the easterly quarter winds whereas much of the country has missed out on these ongoing winds that you’ve experienced.

Dare we say it but they could be hanging in for a bit yet!

Some farmers might be happier in your region though than most others perhaps 🙂
