22 degrees Celsius in Christchurch - in the coldest month

CHRISTCHURCH REACHED 22.2 DEGREES CELSIUS IN THE COLDEST MONTH OF THE YEAR!!!

That's pretty warm, even for summer!  This, I am told, exceeds Australian winter records.

National Institute of Water and Atmosphere Research forecaster Ben Noll says at least some of the past week’s warm weather in New Zealand is due to climate change....Temperatures are also being affected by warmer-than-usual seas around New Zealand, a situation which is not unprecedented, but is unusual for mid-winter”

There is a certain piece of this that is likely linked to climate change – whether that piece is 5 per cent, 30 per cent, or 60 per cent, we do not know”

Try 90%!

This is nothing but a comtemptable lie!

I would like to confront this Ben Noll from NIWA.

Either they are idiots or they are paid to conceal more than they reveal.

I suspect the latter.


RECORD WINTER TEMPERATURES IN NEW ZEALAND
Winter temperature records across the country continue to tumble, with Auckland as warm on Saturday night as a night in November.

I have been following these higher-than-normal temperatures in the Tasman Sea for at leas 6 months and the situation has never changed.  This is has not been reported by anyone until now and NIWA want us to believe this is "normal".  The el-Nino has gone now.

Globally, June was the 14th month in a row for record heat on land and in the oceans, prompting the United Nations to warn last week that emissions of greenhouse gases must be rapidly cut.

National Institute of Water and Atmosphere Research forecaster Ben Noll says at least some of the past week’s warm weather in New Zealand is due to climate change.

There is a certain piece of this that is likely linked to climate change – whether that piece is 5 per cent, 30 per cent, or 60 per cent, we do not know,” he said.

This year has been the warmest year, so far, across the globe on record due in large part to El Nino, but probably enhanced by climate change. The main cause of this round of record warmth in New Zealand was a tropical northwesterly wind flow, enhanced in the east of both islands due to a foehn effect.” (sic)

Temperatures are also being affected by warmer-than-usual seas around New Zealand, a situation which is not unprecedented, but is unusual for mid-winter, Noll said.

New daily temperature records were set on Saturday, Saturday night, and Sunday, with some places as warm or warmer during the night than in November:

South Island record temperatures Saturday:

Christchurch 22.3°C topped 18.8°C from 2005 (3rd warmest July temperature on record; warmer than the typical maximum during January)

Rangiora 21.1°C topped 17.8°C from 2005 (5th warmest July temperature on record)

Waipara 20.3°C topped 17.6°C from 1973 (7th warmest July temperature on record)

Cheviot 21.7°C topped 16.1°C from 1983 (2nd warmest July temperature on record)

Waiau 21.7°C topped 16.1°C from 2013 (warmest July temperature on record)

Glenveigh-Kaikoura 22.5°C topped 19.7°C from 1998

North Island record temperatures Saturday:

Dannevirke 19.8°C topped 18.3°C from 1988 (3rd warmest July temperature on record)

Gisborne 20.4°C topped 19.5°C from 1973

Taupo 16.9°C topped 16.0°C from 1973

Auckland 18.8°C topped 18.3°C from 2011 (max occurred at 3am Saturday night; thus, Auckland had a 3am temperature in mid-winter that is an average max in November)

North Island record temperatures Saturday night:

Dargaville 14.3°C topped 13.5°C from 1998 (7th warmest July minimum temperature on record)

Auckland 14.7°C topped 14.2°C from 1988 (5th warmest July minimum temperature on record)

Hamilton 13.8°C topped 11.3°C from 2012 (2nd warmest July minimum temperature on record)

Tauranga 14.3°C topped 12.4°C from 2012

Taupo 11.4°C topped 9.4°C from 1988

Wairoa 15.8°C topped 12.4°C from 2002 (warmest July minimum temperature on record)

Napier 14.4°C topped 13.6°C from 1988

North Island Record Temperatures Sunday:

Gisborne 19.6°C topped 19.3°C from 1949

Niwa says that a pair of all-time monthly temperature records were also broken, with the warmest July maximum (21.7°C) recorded at Waiau in the north of Canterbury, and warmest July minimum (15.8°C) at Wairoa in the north of Hawke’s Bay.



POSTSCRIPT

Here is Chris Brandalino of the same organisation, NIWA, giving his opinion on the contribution of el-Nino to record temperatures compared with carbon emissions




A few short weeks later he had reverted to the “party line”




Someone has doubtless had a chat with Mr. Brandolino in the meantime.
