The Bay’s exceptional cold snap which has seen overnight June temperatures in Tauranga fall below 3C for nine consecutive days is unparalleled in Bay of Plenty Times weather records dating back to at least 1982.
Never in 27 years do our figures – recorded at Chapel St – show a colder or more long-lasting frosty spell in June.
