From NZ Herald – Aucklands Hottest Ever Day!

Auckland enjoys hottest day ever

A MetService weather station at Whenuapai Air Base has recorded the hottest temperature reading ever in Auckland.

Temperatures peaked at 32.4 degrees Celsius, equalling the previous high recorded in the Auckland Domain in February 1872 – 137 years ago.

Niwa climate expert Jim Salinger said today’s reading was the highest since official Niwa records began in September 1868.

Auckland’s previous temperature high this year was 28.2 degrees, on the North Shore earlier this month.

But Mr Salinger warned temperatures would be much cooler with the arrival of wetter conditions during Friday and over the weekend.
