Scorch­ing Cromwell

Central Otago Mirror - - CONVERSATIONS - JO MCKEN­ZIE-MCLEAN

The South Is­land town of Cromwell has soared to its hottest spring tem­per­a­ture on record.

The Cen­tral Otago town hit 33.3 de­grees Cel­sius at 4pm on Thurs­day - the equal 10th-hottest Novem­ber tem­per­a­ture ever recorded in all of New Zealand.

Shortly af­ter 3pm, Niwa tweeted that Cromwell had bro­ken its spring record when it reached 32.4C, but as pre­dicted it got even hot­ter.

It was a scorcher for most places in the re­gion.

Nearby Wanaka and Alexan­dra reached 30degC and 29.2degC re­spec­tively.
