NZ: Warning over Hawke's Bay drought conditions
For the life of me I can't find anything about this on the internet, although the recent heat wave in the capital.
Christmas day brought humid weather from the remnants of cyclone Evan – the mercury hit 29C in the city ( a record high temperature by 2C), 32C in Lower Hutt and a high 38C in Stokes Valley (unofficial reading).
This is a city that usually experiences temperatures in the high teens or low twenties at this time of year.
