Will we hit 30 degrees today?

It’s possible that today New Zealand will record a temperature in the shade of 30 degrees and over as a strong nor’wester moves across the South Island.

Coupled with clear, sunny, skies in the east the hot winds should see highs in the mid and late 20s for most centres.

That hot weather will then shift into the North Island’s east coast on Sunday, lifting highs by as as much as 12 degrees compared to earlier this week in places like Gisborne, Napier and Hastings, predictions

The latest predictions from say Canterbury and Otago are most likely to hit the 30 degree mark during Saturday.

However the heat won’t be long lasting – with colder winds arriving on Sunday in the South Island, cutting highs back by over 10 degrees.

I can’t believe how dry it is here in Pukekohe. Our water tanks are almost empty. This happened last summer which was the driest for years. Doesn’t look like there’s any decent rain on the horizon either?

I see the MetService have now put highs in the 30s for Chch, Ashburton, Timaru and Oamaru today-that’s warm for November!

As usual, Metservice have now changed this forecast to below 30c for each of those centres. Because they are worried it won’t happen – I am so over Metservice. Keep it up Weatherwatch!
