It’s been a summer of cold temperatures, water spouts and lack of sunshine.
Now new Niwa figures back up what everyone already knows – Auckland’s summer was one of the worst on records.
The figures also show December 18 was also among the coolest on record.
The 14.9C recorded in Whangaparoa that day was the second lowest recorded on December 18 since 1982 while the 15.1C in Whenuapai was the coldest since 1951.
It was 15.5C in Henderson – the second-lowest since 1971 and 15.4C in Auckland central – the third lowest temperature on that day since 1961…
