Warmer than average weather ahead

If you’re enjoying the warmer weather than there’s good news – more is on the way.

In fact, overnight lows over the next five days will be well above average in the north and slowly rising in the south.

A low will pull sub-tropical northerlies over the northern half of the North Island with overnight lows hovering around 13 to 16 degrees for the next few nights – it’s possible that some in the far north may not drop below 17 or 18 degrees.

Meanwhile frosts will be a thing of the past in the South Island as warmer winds crank up – bringing overnight lows into double digits.

Daytime highs will be in the late teens/early 20s for almost all of New Zealand for the remainder of the working week.

Warm nights are good news for us farmers keeps the soil temp up and if June is a mild month we could see some good grass growth, but we need rain first!

Well as far as I’m concerned, that’s not very nice news.
I’m wanting cooler weather as we approach winter. I love an evening fire and have all this wood stacked up. With the sunset around 5pm , it’s nice to relax in front of the fire and have tea, watch the news etc. I like the seasons for what they are, but with climate change, it seems that, at the moment, the previous season is running into the time period of the previous season, which is a bit annoying but then that is the way it seems to be going, I find.
