Just got back from Auckland this evening, was there from Christmas day and I've gotta say the weather was pretty good, sure it wasnt that warm, but the sun came out a fair bit. Boxing day was a little warmer though, everyone was complaining that it was hot! it was only 25C, I didnt even get out of my jumper.
though Auckland does have a very constant climate so I guess you guys would get used to the same sort of temps.
Gotta say, I love your TV1 weather forecasts, the big cities forecast map has cute little animated clouds and showers!
Though gotta say the forecasting for the Nelson region was miles off, had sunny and 20 almost the whole time we were there...
Also the sunset last night in Auckland was awesome, was driving over Mangere Bridge and it looked awesome over the harbour, but as usaul didnt have my camera. Will post up my better photos up soon though, got some good sunsets from Nelson.
Regarding the cooler than normal temps you guys are getting, I feel it has something to do with the ocean temps surrounding you at the moment, they have been constantly 1-2C below normal for ages now.
