A MetService weather station at Whenuapai Air Base has recorded the hottest temperature reading ever in Auckland.
Temperatures peaked at 32.4 degrees Celsius, equalling the previous high recorded in the Auckland Domain in February 1872 - 137 years ago.

Another hot summer day, well by Auckland standards as 32.something degrees isn't exactly steaming. The humidity is very high though.
It was our 15 year wedding anniversary today and my present involved spending the day on the scaffold around the back of the house on the end of a heat gun.
Had the i-Pod going inside the ear-muffs, this painting lark should keep me busy for a few weeks.
I'm pretty happy with the scaffolding that I picked up on trademe for $150.
