Weather: Soaring temperatures set to plummet

From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 11 May 2021

Soaring temperatures around the country are about to plummet.

The country's east coast was hit by a second summer on Monday with some areas reaching almost 30 degrees.

Napier, Waipawa and Masterton all broke local temperature records for May. 

It'll be another scorcher for many today - Kaikōura could reach an unseasonal 28 degrees. 

But all this is about to change.
NIWA Meteoroligist Chris Brandolino has the answers.
