Climate News in brief - 03/31/2016

Warming in Wellington, New Zealand

These are average temperatures for Wellington, New Zealand. I live in Lower Hutt where summertime temperatures are a little higher

Let's take the average maximum temperatures which are 20C in January and February.

This year the temperatures I measured every day were around 24C and never below 22C throughout February and the first half of March.


Way higher than 20C!
