Doin the big melt here, when car windshields and everything else is dirty, 54f/12c. Fog like a bastard, meltin' the yellow snow.

Melt snow melt.

That western high ridge - to - low eastern trough just lob's 'em off South Carolina over the warm gulf stream; February to go...

Lol, winter, phase II?

'Crazy' night-time temperatures as Wellington swelters
PIERS FULLER AND GED CANN
Last updated 21:50, January 15 2018

What a difference a year makes.

This time last year, Wellingtonians were complaining of their "bummer summer", with chilly temperatures, rain and high winds.

Twelve months on, there are after-work queues to get to the beach at Oriental Bay, the nights are almost too hot to sleep, and on Sunday an ambulance crew had to switch vehicles in Wairarapa because it was too hot to treat patients in the back of one of them.

The figures tell the story dramatically: Sunday's lowest night-time temperature was 18.7 degrees Celsius; last year the mean maximum day-time temperature was 18.6C for all the first 11 days of January.

MetService meteorologist Tui McInnes said Sunday's overnight minimum of 18.7C was "crazy for Wellington. As a Wellingtonian, I'm not used to going to sleep at night with temperatures in the high teens.

Queues are developing regularly in Wellington as residents flock to the water after work.

"At night we still don't have strong winds to disturb that, so things don't cool down as much."

The sunny days and sleepless nights are likely to continue until Friday, as northerly winds from the tropics deliver hot, humid air to the capital.

Weather-dependant businesses have been making hay after last year's shocker. Kaffee Eis owner Karl Tiefenbacher said the hole-in-the-wall store by Frank Kitts Park was churning through more than 170 litres of gelato on a daily basis.

Lyall Bay was still full of swimmers on Monday evening.

"Every day we are pretty much selling out of everything we have on-site."

Wellington City Council spokesman Richard MacLean said traffic jams were developing regularly as residents flocked to the beach after work, with some queues stretching from Oriental Parade to the railway station.

"The tailbacks and the delays are longest between about 5pm and 6.30pm ... Our advice is that if you want to take a soothing dip, then it's best to maybe find a car park in the CBD and then walk to Oriental Bay – otherwise you'll be sitting and sweating and getting agitated in traffic," he said.

The shadows were lengthening, but it was still warm on Lyall Bay beach.

Temperatures cracked 30C in the Hutt Valley on Sunday, and in Wairarapa at Wellington Free Ambulance crew had to abandon the vehicle they had driven over the hill from Wellington because it had no airconditioning for patients in the back. They swapped it for one based in Masterton that had aircon.

Spokeswoman Diane Livingston said most of Wellington Free's vehicles had air conditioning, and it made sure they were deployed on hot days – "especially in the Wairarapa, which is typically a few degrees hotter than this side of the hill".

It's not only humans who have been struggling in the heat. Masterton pet owner Jane Bunny said her animals were behaving strangely, and struggling to settle at night.

A family cooling off in Whairepo Lagoon, central Wellington, on Monday.

"It's like monsoon weather. It's so humid, it's like being in India. There's no point in getting in the shade because the shade's just as hot."

The warm weather is expected to continue across the Wellington region, with maximum temperatures predicted to be in the mid 20s for the next week to 10 days.

In Wairarapa, temperatures of close to 30C can be expected later in the week.

Hot weather and warm ocean temperatures have fuelled formation of storm clouds in the lower and central North Island.

I went from an awesome 64 and nice in the San Francisco Bay only to return to my least favorite think about living in the Northern California Valley...Tule fog this nightmare is dense, dank, wet, and cold. When I worked construction I dreaded it unless I was in the foothills where one is above it (makes for some awesome pictures if you have a scenic view).

This monster can stretch from Redding to Bakersfield almost 450 miles long and about 100 miles wide.

Driving in it is scary, driving for hours with quarter mile visibility or less is stressful and when you hear about 50 car pile-up in California it is usually in these conditions.

It can occure while it is cold enough to cause black ice and freezing drizzle but it is not actually raining.

Everything is wet and it is plain old miserable, in a word it sucks.
