    Another couple of hot days, with some places getting more than 8 degrees above normal. Some places will reach 36 degrees maybe more. Remember to slip, slop, slap, seek shade and very importantly stay hydrated. Start the day with a 1/2 ltre of water onboard and continually drink. Drink small amounts often. When the air is dry you will not notice you're sweating as it evaporates instantly. If you bend down and upon coming back up you feel dizzy you're probably dehydrated. Your blood is thickening and can't circulate as easily.  A couple of ways you can tell you're needing fluids1 You haven't done wees for several hours2 Your wees are quite dark3 If your wees are almost clear then you should be OK

    South Islanders: Snow and wind chill alerts as spring storm dredges up Antarctic cold next Monday We’re at the end of September and well into Spring but a significant wintry blast of weather is on the way to southern NZ for the final days of September. Storm map showing size and intensity Lert Info has already issued an early heads up to farmers, in particular with new born lambs and livestock in Otago, Southland and South Canterbury. Alert sent Thursday morning The current data suggests snow flurries are expected in Gore, Lumsden, Queenstown, Arrowtown, Wanaka and potentially Dunedin . Sleet is possible in Invercargill with below zero wind chill at times. Metservice Outlook Daytime highs will range from just +2 degrees to +7 degrees across the lower South Island at the warmest point of Monday, based on Thursday's data. Wind chill will likely be in the negatives for a large portion of Monday in exposed areas of Southland. This could be deadly for newborn lambs. Misery Index for Monday 7pm - Wind plus temperature combined Tongue of cold air from Antarctica   Swells This may even be one of the lower to sea level snow events of 2020 despite us almost being in the tenth month of the year. Late snow storms in September and October do happen from time to time – Spring is all about winter slowly fading away and hints of summer slowly coming in.
