The Crackle of Dawn

Yesterday’s frosty start in Tawa wasn’t the coldest recorded by the Tawa Weather station, but it was close.

Saturday 20th June 2009

Friday’s frosty start saw a crackling dawn for many commuters as they crunched their way across frost-encrusted lawns on their way to work. Birdbaths froze, ice crystals sparkled on fencetops and breath steamed. Tawa Weather’s thermometer dropped to 0.3 °C at 6:32 a.m.

The temperature was the lowest recorded in Tawa this year, but just above the weather station’s lowest temperature of 0.0 °C recorded at 6:19 a.m. on the 7th of September 2007. Tawa Weather has been monitoring weather conditions since January 2005.
