No global warming in New Zealand

Hi Robert,

Here was NIWA's forcast for August and October:

       “The climate over the next three month period is expected to be typical of
        early spring right across New Zealand, according to the latest outlook from
        NIWA’s National Climate Centre.

       “Following the third cold month in a row, the centre says temperatures for
        the coming season (August, September, and October combined) are likely
        to be about average. Rainfalls are also likely to be near normal in all regions.”

Now compare it to the latest weather advisory for New Zealand:

       “ANOTHER COLD OUTBREAK ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY

       “MetService forecasters are predicting another cold outbreak to affect the
        country on Wednesday and Thursday. A very cold southerly airstream is
        expected to move quickly north over the South Island on Wednesday and
        the North Island on Thursday.

       “Over the South Island, snow showers are expected to lower to 500 metres
        in Otago, Southland and Fiordland during Wednesday afternoon and to 300
        metres in the evening; while for Canterbury and Marlborough snow showers
        should lower to 500 metres in the evening and to 300 metres overnight
        Wednesday.

       “The cold outbreak is expected to hit the North Island on Thursday. Snow
        showers are likely to lower to 700 metres from Taihape southwards, and
        even to 500 metres for a time early morning about Wellington, Wairarapa
        and Manawatu.

       “...the snow is likely to affect higher roads and passes. The cold outbreak
        will also be driven by very strong southerlies, resulting in very low wind chill
        temperatures, which are likely to cause distress to livestock."  

Yes we have globaloney here in New Zealand as well. Incidently, the head of NIWA had an unusually large pay increase in a recession - its all over the news here.
