It's currently 5 degrees in Upper Hutt but the wind chill factor is lower. It's definitely chilly here.

It was minus two degrees Celcius at my place when I went to work at 3:45am this morning, although there wasn't a frost.


At Upper Hutt railway station this morning, with the second photograph looking towards Mount Climie out the back of Upper Hutt....







The weather at Carterton, mid-morning....





Wairarapa countryside near the foothills of the Tararua Ranges, late-morning....









Down in the South Island overnight, it was considerably colder, getting down to minus-20 at Pukaki near Mount Cook....

New Zealand drops to 20°C below freezing

Freezing weather holds up Mackenzie workers

Another cold one today. A good day to be starting work early (at 4am), but finishing mid-morning.


Silverstream (at the northern end of Upper Hutt), just before 9am this morning....









Wairarapa, mid-morning....









Meanwhile, it was another freezing night last night all over New Zealand, but particularly cold in the South Island.

Another chilly winter day in Wairarapa. I've finished work for the day and it's currently 8°C outside my place.

Here are three photographs taken from the SH2 bridge over the Waingawa River looking upstream towards the Tararua Ranges. The train crossing the bridge is the one I drove over to Wellington and back early this morning, now on its second return trip, but with a fresh crew....

It's raining in the Hutt today. It's also blowing a gale. I had no idea just how ferocious the wind gusts were until I went outside and found my outdoor chairs blown across the lawn and the entire table had moved by a few metres. The glass on top of the table was half off. I'm lucky there were no breakages.

By Rhys Chamberlain on Mon, 30 Nov 2015
News: Dunedin

Dust off the swimsuit and spark up the barbecue because summer is upon us and Otago is set to reach some summer-like temperatures this week.

Tomorrow marks the first day of the meteorological summer.

MetService meteorologist Emma Blades said, in a release, temperatures would start to rise in the southeast.

''Moist northwest winds strengthen on Wednesday and temperatures are likely to approach 30degC in parts of Otago.''

A front would sweep up the South Island on Thursday, bringing rain to the west and hot, windy conditions to the east, she said.

MetService duty meteorologist Arno Dyason said Otago would experience a ''nice few days'' this week.

''The northwesterlies in that part of the country will see it heat up a bit,'' Mr Dyason said.

Wednesday would be the warmest day, with high temperatures predicted.

Dunedin city was forecast to reach 27degC while Alexandra would claim the region's high of 29degC.

Dunedin airport was forecast to hit 28degC, Oamaru 26degC, Queenstown 25degC and Balclutha 23degC.

A few spots of rain, possibly some showers, might occur on Thursday and by the weekend it would be cooler, Mr Dyason said.

It's a lovely early summer day in Wairarapa today. Here is a photograph taken not long after sunrise this morning....



The two prominent peaks close together are Mitre (1571 metres) and Peggys Peak (1545 metres), the highest and third-highest peaks in the Tararua Ranges.

Across the other side of the ranges in the Hutt Valley and Wellington, it was a grey morning earlier on, although it was starting to clear up by mid-morning.

The clouds briefly lifted off the Tararua Ranges this morning to reveal a decent dump of snow all over the mountains.

I was travelling on a train over to Upper Hutt at the time to catch up with my sister and I didn't have a camera with me.

Now I know why it got so cold last night (we have had temperatures in the mid-20s over the past week or so).

I'm back in Wairarapa now and the clouds have lowered and are completely covering the mountain range, but with the amount of snow on them this morning, it will take a few days to melt.

Surprisingly, we have had a decent dump of snow on the Tararua Ranges every December since I've been living in Wairarapa (I moved here in October 1998) apart from December last year and December about four years ago. On at least two occasions, the big snow dump occurred only a couple of days before Christmas with the result that on Christmas Day we had blue skies & sunshine with temperatures in the mid-to-upper-20s, but with a backdrop of snow-covered mountains.

The long-range weather forecast is for a cold southerly to pass up the country about the middle of next week, followed by several days of fine, warm weather, so perhaps more snow will be dumped on the ranges just in time for Christmas Day.

According to Sky News today is the fourth day of 40c temperatures in South Australia

http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/four-days-over-40c-predicted-for-adelaide/news-story/b31718333261e61552155591b0bbd215

"Such an unbroken run of soaring forties in December has never been recorded in the city but, after today’s sizzling weather, and a high of 41.1C at 3.19pm yesterday, Friday is expected to reach 41C and Saturday, 42C.

Although similar four-day runs have been recorded in February, the current event would be the earliest in any summer since January 3-6, 1906."



 Shocked

according to The Herald the tail end of the Aussie's dragon is promised for lil ole NZ too:

..."Parts of New Zealand can expect their hottest December day in decades as a mini-heatwave sends temperatures soaring into the mid 30s.

Metservice is forecasting Blenheim to hit 35C and Christchurch 31C on Monday.

The rest of Otago, Canterbury and the east coast of the North Island can expect to swelter in 30C temperatures on Monday and Tuesday.

MetService duty forecaster Claire Flynn said it was poised to be the hottest December day for Blenheim on record...."

It's another cracker day in the Capital (well Upper Hutt anyway) Like the last several days, I've had all doors and windows open and trying to sleep during the day whilst on night shift has been too hot. My wee cats are loving the freedom that the summer weather brings.

We actually got some much-needed rain overnight in Wairarapa.

New Year's Eve dawned overcast & grey, but the cloud was breaking up by mid-morning.

Over in Wellington, a light southerly breeze was blowing, but it was a clear, sunny day.

The last day of 2015 as viewed from Upper Witako hill above Wellington, mid-afternoon....

Yeah, it always blows in Featherston.

The other day, I smashed through a tree which got blown over right in front of me a couple of kilometres after departing from Woodside.

When I got to Featherston a few minutes later, the front of the locomotive was still covered in debris, but as soon as I stopped there, the wind stripped it clean and all of the tree debris went flying through the air and disappeared.

It was supposed to rain last night with a shower at 6pm .

I am using Accuweather's  forecast for my particular location. They were a few minutes out.

They gave us a good bit overnight with more promised for 10am then after 1pm and more on Friday/Saturday.

I am so delighted.  The local fire risk will have been reduced and my potplants saved. 

**so now I can start fretting about floods
