Where´s summer?? (PHOTOS)

While some western parts of the country – particularly Canterbury and Gisborne – have been sweltering in high temperatures to kick off our warmest season, many others can´t say the same.

For most kiwis, summer signals a return to jandals, BBQs and beach towels – but the start of this summer has seen some cooler than average conditions in most places.

Auckland, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Wellington, Invercargill and the West Coast – to name a few – have seen much lower December temperatures this year than normal – and, as with most of the wacky weather around the Pacific – it´s all thanks to El Niño.

Check out some of our readers´responses to the recent cooler weather, below – and keep the submissions coming, on our twitter page, here.
