This is the one thing that ive noticed thats changed over the years, when i worked in my area 30 years ago and i lived in Rangiora at the time, i would leave Rangiora with little or no frost and get to the Amuri area where it would be a moderate to heavy frost. But these days there seems little difference between in the spring frosts.

Yep, MS says -2.8C at Chch Aero this morn, which beats its previous Nov record of -2.6C set in 2008 since records began in 1953.

Wow 2 all-time low monthly records in one year, looks like 2015 will be the only month alongside 1980 (July and August) to hold that distinction for Christchurch

The only thing that i had hit by the frost was some tomatoes that had woolen covers over, thankfully only slightly.

Will need to cover again tonight again as well
