Early Hot November Weather

Unread post by NZ Thunderstorm Soc »

It got up to 33C here in Geraldine today'
Might be a good idea for a new topic.
Very warm with not much wind here.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring?
I see there were a lot of plus 30s over the country especially in inland areas.

NIWA giving a maximum of 32.5°C at Clyde on the SI:

As a comparison to the UK to what would equate to early May here, the highest temperatures are 29°C, with 32°C not reached until the end of the month.

Slight NE wind which is the hot wind for here, makes a change from the long periods of NW of late.

Not quite 30C here yet. We bit more of an easterly here compared to yesterday's wind absence, if so a very slight westerly.

Yes absolutely roasting here in HoonHay, Christchurch on 35 degrees. I notice it's hottest about Cashmere, HoonHay and Halswell currently, with 31 at the airport. No breeze to speak of.

How can it be so hot here (halswell) yet Lyttleton and New Brighton only on 18.9C & 17.1C Although that Lyttleton site must be much more exposed to the easterly

The westerly does not seem to be as strong as expected, only 11kph even out at the very exposed Port Taharoa. Means the heat I think will be more widespread inland NI, but places like Rotorua, Kawerau etc may not exceed 30 today.

Cracked the 30c mark here but today's heat seems different to yesterdays as there is a bit of an easterly blowing compared to yesterday's stagnant heat.
