Forecasters expect more of this in the coming months, and not just in Hawke’s Bay.
NIWA meteorologist Chris Brandolino said Wednesday’s heat was caused by a classic weather pattern of northwest airflow along the east coast of the North and South Islands, along with warm, dry foehn wind blowing down mountain ranges and hills.

Temperatures dropped again today, although Gisborne could hit mid-twenties, Brandalino said, and a warm November was imminent.
“The next three months are looking warm,” said Brandolino.
“It is very likely that the temperatures are above average.
“That doesn’t mean every single day will be warm and above average, there will be cool periods, they just won’t define the period.”
There will be a period of unusually warm temperatures across the country from the end of the first week of November, and there will be a 30 ° C day in the second week, Brandalino said.
“We’re going to get really warm air, and that’s going to warm our seas, and there’s a kind of positive cycle where if our seas are warmer than average, our air temperatures are more likely to get warmer than average.”
Warm temperatures () now, but look what’s coming in the 2nd half of the weekend ()
