Balmy weather could outlast reservoirs – NZ Herald

How long can this golden weather last? That is a question New Zealanders do not normally ask until February, or March if we are lucky.

This summer started in October. At Halloween the South Island was in a heatwave with Alexandra recording 26C and even Invercargill enjoying 25.6C. The North Island was not much cooler. Since then the sizzling sunshine has continued through November into December and there are still nearly two weeks to Christmas.
