New Zealand's summer heatwave by the numbers - where was the highest temperature recorded?

Hanmer Springs topped the temperature charts during this week's heatwave - hitting 38.4 degrees Celsius yesterday.

NIWA has published data from the heatwave, which also revealed Hamilton (32.9 degrees) and Wellington (30.3 degrees) had their hottest days on record, on January 29.

"This was the first time two main centres broke their all-time maximum temperature records in the same day," NIWA said in a statement.

Hanmer's temperature was the highest since data started being collected in 1906, and was the 18th-equal highest temperature on record.

On January 27, Richmond, near Nelson, only dropped to 24.3 degrees, which is a new warm minimum temperature record for the wider region, since data was first collected in 1862.

Other towns and regions to set new records were:

  • Medbury: 37.9 ˚C on 31st Jan (data since 1927)
  • Waiau: 37.8 ˚C on 31st Jan (data since 1974)

IPT Report 2017

Please click here for some interesting reading noting that on average still 33% of Appeals with the IPT is allowed! This does not take into account those people who have returned to their country not knowing about the Appeal process or not wishing to lodge an Appeal. Interesting question you could ask yourself: what does that say about the quality of a Decision from INZ?
