Event Details





If you thought 2018 was rather warm in Hastings, then you were right – it was the city’s warmest year on record.

It was NZ’s second warmest year on record, Wairoa’s third warmest and Napier’s sixth warmest.

It’s part of an overall warming trend, which a leading climate scientist says is a “wake-up call” for politicians to take action.

In its annual summary released on Tuesday, Niwa said 2018’s mean of 13.41C was 0.8C above its records since 1909, equalling 1998.
