In the mean time Auckland put on some pretty good weather for the week I was there (got back today). Sure, there were some showers, but mostly it was t-shirt weather. Thanks NZ for another fantastic week. smile

A great and rare continuous thunderstorm overnight the greater Auckland area. The typical kind of stuff you see form 200 km off the south NSW coast with the large elevated convection complexes.

Some records have been broken in the South Island today! As things stand at the moment, the temperatures that have broken December records are:

Christchurch - 36.1C (Previous December record: 35.4C, 1975)

Oamaru - 31.9C (Previous December record: 31.7C, 1999)

Dunedin - 33.1C (At the airport, previous record: 32.2C, 1990)

Timaru - 34.1C (Equalled the previous Dec record set in 1997)

Ashburton reached 35.3C, which wasn't a record, but came close to their record of 36.3C.

I have to say having lived in QLD and then Melbourne for all my life before moving to Christchurch 3 years ago yesterday's 36C felt very pleasant and easy to handle, I've been waiting for a day that hot since I moved here and there is just something completely different to the heat over here, maybe has something to do with it always getting down to at least a cool minimum the morning after...

I'd assume the heat had low humidity too which may have made it feel different ?

Probably the sun is more "intense" in Australia too.

Looks awesome on the Weatherzone Layers's visible satellite image.
You can see the extent of the snow cover when there is no cloud.

Forgive me for the OT post, but I was wondering if any of you could help me identify this location:


It's one of the desktop backgrounds for either Asus or Windows 10.

Apparently it's somewhere on the West Coast of NZ (that's all I've been able to find out).

I think it's rather stunning and would love to know where it is.

Your Google skills must be a bit sharper than mine wink I'm not sure, however, what Edale would refer to. It seems to be either a farmstead in Canterbury (streetview looks nothing like it), or a retirement home in Marton on the Nth Island.

Thanks

PS: I searched google using the image...check out the photo on the right hand side of the search box...I clicked on that and posted the URL of the photo you posted on the site smile

Pretty interesting, the permanent snow line in New Zealand for Mount Cook is above freezing for the first time since I've personally started recording it since May last year.

Freezing level is 3750 and 1 degree at 3700.

I often wonder whether the region around Mt Cook (above 3000m) would be the snowiest place on earth with an absolute MINIMUM of 12,000mm of precipitation a year and at least 90% of that falling as snow above 3000m through the year that would indicate around 110m of snow a year or around 360 feet. This obviously obliterates the highest official yearly snowfall of 29m or 95 feet at Mt Baker in 1998 but I would imagine in some places in southern coastal Alaska or the mountains of northern Hokkaido in Japan could get close to Mt Cook. All unofficial of course but it would be fascinating to take some official readings over a few years in those places...
