Heatwave Expected to Hit NZ

New Zealand can expect a mini heatwave starting next week as it hits the South Island and Eastern Areas of the North Island. Christchurch will reach 33C on Monday and Gisborne will hit 29C on Tuesday.

Meteorologist Emma Blades told the New Zealand Herald, “It’s like a tongue of warm air that’s being pulled across from Australia over the South Island.”

The North Island’s central and eastern regions will reach 29-29C and for added good news, Christmas Day is expected to be nice and fine throughout the country.
