A hot day but a storm is coming

Today reached a high of 34°C in Dunedin and even now at 10:30pm it is still 26°. But that’s due to change in about an hour when a deep low left over from tropical cyclone Fehi hits with lots of rain and a southerly change. We are not likely to see much of it, but there is also a lunar eclipse tonight.

weather 14 January 2018

Today was sunny but windy in Dunedin with 27km/hr northeasterlies. 70% humidity. The high was 25°C, low was 17°C.

We had the Fire Service turn up around 3pm because a neighbour decided to burn rubbish in their backyard despite it being hot, dry and windy with a complete fire ban. I think most of us were relieved to see them turn up because their ‘little fire’ did not appear very well controlled.
