Just hit 25.0°C and rising in our backyard (DP 16°C) - not bad for a typical moderate SW'er.

Someone left the heater on :rolleyes:

Seriously, it peaked at 31.4C here and then cooled off with a slight SE then NE later.
Much cooler in Darfield where it only reached 29C, today's national high, and much cooler than that at the airport where it only reached 28C.

SW Cape on Stewart Is has the highest mean windspeed of the currently listed NIWA sites and would beat those places for NW, W and SW.
