Warm and humid again on Wednesday

The thermometer did not climb quite as high on Wednesday as Tuesday but a maximum of 26.5C was still 5.4C above the 38-year average.

Another dry day with the UV level peaking at High.

Yet another very mild night due to the southerly air stream and complete cloud cover. The thermometer did not drop below 15.1C, which was 3.4C above the average.

Thursday dawned dull and cloudy with a much lower cloud base due to an extensive rain band moving Northeast, just to the east of Marlborough, bringing its extensive cloud but no rain to this area, it was very near, just 10 miles to the east. The humidity at 0800 was 93%.

Just after midnight the wind direction began to veer a little, from the north-northwest or north and light.
