Default "Heatwave"! Is scorchio back?

Sunnies and sun screen at the ready:
A heatwave is heading straight for New Zealand after bringing scorching temperatures to Australia.

The heatwave on Saturday in Sydney will drift over the Tasman Sea to the South Island on Sunday, then the North Island on Monday.

Thanks for this. We are now entering the season for wind rain and hail after having the standard UK summer.

Please please let's have some scorchio.

It has been a very long cold wet windy winter. Even today we are totally sogged out .

Scorchio will be most welcome before the late Spting , early Summer Xmas rains.

Lobbing it down in Marlborough, again. Been a horrible soggy week. Veg garden looking sad, but everything is hanging on. Bring on the sun tomorrow. Been so bored I have even been on BE for a change!

Currently my idea of scorchio and that of Metservice are many miles apart.

Thankfully I'm escaping to somewhere nice and cold in a months time! Enjoy the mozzies, sandflies and sunburn chaps & chapettes!

I think we had a distinct failure to deliver on the last promise of sun but, if you can look into your hearts to set the past aside, we are again being promised that scorchio will one day return: http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2017/10/south-island-to-enjoy-near-record-highs.html

Important health announcement:
Ladies and gentlemen...all of the above and none of the above (everyone covered?). For your own safety we ask you to drink plenty of G&Ts. There has never been a case of Malaria transmission in New Zealand and I'll be damned if it's going to happen on our watch!

Interestingly the article doesn't actually specify which day

Having just checked out our local forecast all I can see for the next ten days is nothing more optimistic than a few brief spells of 'fine' smattered amongst many episodes of mostly cloudy, rain, showers and south westerly breezes.
