Stunning and hot days in Upper Hutt for yesterday and today - it rained heavily late afternoon/early evening 31 December - but I didn't care - I was just off night syift nd welcomed the rain to dampen too much hi-jinks and fireworks in my neighbourhood.

Thank goodness for air conditioning.

We must have had the same NYE weather as you, Ali.  I just loved the showers, squelched the hi-jinks and fireworks in my neighbourhood. which was absolutely marvellous cos I had been nervous with drought conditions quite bad in the district.

Funny to hear the fireworks start up every time after a heavy shower that had sent the campers back under cover.

Back to my sort of day today. 21c under cloud cover

The fireworks went on to all hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas night. The rain was a blessing on NY's Eve.

You are obviously like me Nitz - we cherish our peace and quiet.

It has been a bloody hot day east of the dividing range in the North Island today. I started the day in Gisborne, then drove south to Hawke's Bay, then turned off SH2 at Waipukurau and headed down Route 52 from there to Masterton — to avoid the traffic, and the revenue-gathers (cops).

I travelled via Porangahau, Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, Wimbledon and Pongaroa through the backblocks of Central Hawke's Bay, Tararua District and Masterton District.

I got home to both digital and mercury thermometers showing 31°C inside my place (in spite of leaving security-stay-equipped windows open over the weekend while I was away), with the official temperature on the television news shown as 30°C. After a few hours of all the fans running inside my place, the inside temperature still 30°C and it's also still bloody warm outside.


Here are a couple of views from the Wharerata summit on SH2 looking through the heat haze towards Poverty Bay and Gisborne....






And this photo was taken while driving at speed over the SH2 bridge across the Mohaka Viaduct, showing the 318-feet/97-metre high Mohaka Viaduct....



During the 20½ years I lived in Gisborne from March 1976 until October 1996, I reckon I must have driven trains across that bridge a few thousand times.

a blast from the past:

A detailed look at the rainmakers for the next 14 days
WeatherWatch.co.nz,
Fuseworks
 January 7, 2012, 11:5

There is no end in sight for the relentless rain over the upper North Island and now the latest long range maps are showing things getting worse rather than getting better predicts WeatherWatch.co.nz.

The weather news authority breaks down the next two weeks of weather and what it means for you - and it shows the rain makers in our part of the world are currently running wild.

It's been a wet and not particularly hot summer so far for our most popular holiday spots. The rain is now here to stay for northern and sometimes western NZ. This is roughly from Taupo and Gisborne northwards, with particular emphasis on Bay of Plenty, Coromandel, East Cape and Auckland, but also the western coastline of the country.

So what's coming towards us? Head weather analyst Philip Duncan explains...

"Firstly - this weekend - we have a sub-tropical low that has already set in over the upper North Island. To make conditions even wetter, the low is being cradled by high pressure in the south and east. In other words, like a golf ball being cupped by both your hands - it ain't going nowhere. So it will rain itself out - and that will take several days. The most widespread rain is likely Saturday and Sunday - then the low weakens but works with the high to continue a wet nor'east stream of weather coming in".

Mr Duncan says by Monday it's managed to push a cloudy, humid, drizzly nor'easter right down the east coast of the South Island too while sunny spells finally develop in the north.

"On Tuesday a very large high well to our south east will keep the wet nor'east flow over the upper North Island. It will link to the tropical air south of Fiji. Speaking of the tropics, it looks as though a tropical cyclone will form south east of Samoa on Tuesday. It will intensify rapidly as it drifts in that same flow, but luckily it will likely remain too far east to have any serious impact on New Zealand".

Wednesday sees more showers over the North Island, and some lighter showers dotted about the South island.

Thursday a new low, this time developing in the Tasman Sea and by Friday it pushes into the West Coast of the country - with showers or a brief period of rain for the upper North Island.

By Friday that likely tropical cyclone will be peaking about 2000kms to our north east.

"By next Sunday the possible cyclone will be 1500kms to our north east, but will be weakening as it pushes in to high pressure.

However, the high will have an easterly flow which will help pull apart that cyclone - that easterly flow then travels past the upper North Island and towards Queensland - meaning more fuel for clouds, showers and rain".

WeatherWatch.co.nz says despite all the rain , the driest, hottest, and sunniest weather will remain over Southland and Otago - two regions that need rain more than anywhere else in the country. "Oddly it's the highs over the lower South Island which have been responsible not only for the very dry weather there, but also the big rain makers in the north. The highs departure from northern New Zealand has literally left the flood gates wide open for the sub-tropics - and that gate isn't shutting anytime in the next two weeks".

And for the weekend starting Jan 21st - look to the west and north west as more Tasman Sea fronts move in."This is more than just La Nina - there is a definite lack of strong highs centering themselves over central New Zealand" says Mr Duncan. "They are all to the south. Until this changes, the upper North Island can expect the status quo".

Wellington sizzles in January heat

It's hotter, drier and less windy

By TIM DONOGHUE | 8:22AM - Monday, 26 January 2015

EVEN the tide played ball at Wellington's Oriental Bay yesterday afternoon to conclude a perfect weather weekend in the capital.

Thousands of Wellingtonians crammed on to the bay for some fun in the sun yesterday to make the best of the stunner sunshine-packed weekend.

MetService confirmed yesterday was the capital's hottest day of the new year with the mercury hitting 27 degrees Celcius at Kelburn, hotter even than Paraparaumu, which reached 24 degrees Celcius.

A low tide about 4pm yesterday meant there was plenty of sand for the revellers to stretch out on the expansive beach.

Lifeguard Mike Stuart said he and his three colleagues, who were on duty, had few problems on the thronging beach.

“It's busy I can tell you that. But everyone's been well behaved and all is quiet. There's just been the odd cut but nothing to bother us. There's been loads and loads of people down here,” Stuart said yesterday.

Locals weren't the only ones impressed.

“It's our second trip down here and we've never seen weather like it in Wellington before. We'll be back as long as our son continues to live here and the sun continues to shine,” retired Scottish electrician Charley Anderson said.

Wellington harbour was also a hive of activity.

The boys from Fergs Kayaks were flat out getting kayakers and stand-up paddle boarders out on to millpond-like water.

Boaties and yachties also entered into the spirit of the day by quietly mooring their craft beyond the fountain and swimming pontoons yesterday.

Kaffee Eis, a cafe overlooking the lagoon, and ice cream dispensers on Oriental Bay and at Frank Kitts Park had queues of people lined up waiting for their coffee fixes and cooling treats throughout the boiling day.

While stylishly-dressed women walked their white poodles while dodging the ‘Enormous Crocodile’ quad pedallers on the Oriental Parade promenade, hundreds of others passed their time watching youngsters leaping off the high dive platform at the southern end of the Taranaki Street wharf.

January hotter, driver, calmer

It's official: Wellington is basking in a January blessed with a perfect trifecta of higher temperatures alongside less wind and rain than the past 52 years.

Weather statistics confirmed yesterday what hordes already knew as they flocked to the beaches during a weekend of blue skies and scorching temperatures.

MetService forecaster Nicole Ranger said Wellington's January had been 1 degree Celsius warmer, a whole lot drier and less windy compared to annual average maximums recorded for the month since 1962.

The mercury hit 27°C yesterday, the capital's hottest day for 2015.

Depending how the final six days panned out, it could become a record-breaking January.

The highest average daily January temperature for Wellington since MetService began recording it in 1962 was 21°C. To date, the average maximum for this month at Wellington Airport was 22°C. While only a single degree different, it was one of three weather factors that had turned the capital into summer-central.

So far this month, Wellington had its lowest ever recorded January rainfall since MetService began recording statistics.

“With a week to go, we've had just 2.2mm of rain at the airport. The lowest rainfall on record was 6.8mm of rain out there in January 2001,” Ranger said.

Average wind levels were also lower at Wellington Airport this month than in the previous 52 years.

“So far this month, we have had an average wind figure [there] of 24 kilometres per hour.”

Since the early 1960s, the average mean wind speed figure at Wellington Airport was 28km/h.

“So, so far this month, we are down an average 4km/h on the average mean wind speed,” she said.

The city's maximum temperatures during the latter half of last month ranged from 20°C to 24°C, with Christmas Eve claiming the highest December temperature of 24°C.

This month, the mercury on most days had passed 20°C.

Ranger said the highest Wellington Airport temperature recorded for the month since 1962 was 28°C in 1975, a few degrees more than this weekend, when temperatures at Wellington Airport soared to a balmy 26°C.

Wellington's hottest ever recorded temperature is 31.1°C.




Around the North Island, the mercury rose to roasting levels in some places over the weekend, with Masterton Airport's temperature on Saturday reaching 30°C and only Taumarunui beating it at 30.3°C.

“The big high over the country over the past few days had been good for Wellington,” Ranger said.

She predicted weather would remain above 20°C for the Wellington region until Thursday and a slightly cooler 19°C for Friday.

School pupils returning to school throughout the region this week could expect sunny weather through until tomorrow night, with partly cloudy weather forecast for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Parched pastures and gardens around the region would get a reprieve on Saturday, when the first rainfall was predicted to arrive, coinciding with the end of the summer holidays for some students.

The Wellington Rural Fire Authority said the fire risk was high from Wellington to Otaki.

Meanwhile, rural firefighters had been working round the clock in many parts of the tinder-dry eastern South Island from Marlborough to Canterbury and further south into Central Otago.

It started off with clear blue skies and a glorious sunrise in Wairarapa this morning. However, by 8:00am, an off-shore easterly was spilling clouds over the Wairarapa coast and by mid-morning it was cloudy all the way inland to the Wairarapa valley and the Tararua Ranges with the tops of the mid-Tararua peaks covered in cloud, although the southern-Tararua peaks were still clear. Since then, the cloud has partially broken up and it is now partly-cloudy in Masterton with a gentle easterly breeze and a warm day. A wee bit of rain is forecast for later, but I'll believe it when I see it. I doubt if the region's farmers will be holding their breaths for the rain they desperately need right now. I think we'll only get a little bit of drizzle if we're lucky. Then the nor'westers will return by the end of the week and continue drying the region out.

Wellington weather's heating up

8:18AM - Tuesday, 27 January 2015

SUNNY WELLINGTON: It's shaping up to be another hot day in Wellington. — Photo: JULIET ALLNATT.
.SUNNY WELLINGTON: It's shaping up to be another hot day in Wellington — JULIET ALLNATT.

WELLINGTON is today in for its hottest day of summer so far.

Wellington city was today forecast to reach 27 degees Celcius while Hutt Valley could reach 31°C, MetService forecaster Lisa Murray said.

Wellington Airport was already at 16°C at 7.30am today.

Wellington city's previous highs this summer were 26°C over the past two days and Hutt Valley had reached 29°C over summer.

The warm weather, “if you are not a farmer”, was being caused by a ridge pushing over New Zealand which was keeping us under “nice, settled weather”.

That was combined with a warm air mass coming down from the tropics.

The temperatures were expected to ease off during the week but only slightly and there would be a bit of cloud around in the capital.

Cooler temps and lifesaving thick fog drizzle over the last few days, here in our microclimate.  Our website uses http://www.accuweather.com and promises "Spotty showers with 25oc"  today and I could really count the individual raindrops that had stuck on my kitchen window this morning.

We had a little bit of rain overnight - not much, but just enough. The temperature has dropped a little bit but it's still muggy.
