This station uses NZ Meterological Standards, a "day" is from 9am to 9am of the following day. So if you want to see the overnight low temp after 9am you will need to look in yesterday's extreme conditions. For the same reason the daily report for the current month is not available until 9:15am on the following day.

Status report: Outdoor Temperature/Humidity Sensor intermittantly Faulty usually after rainfall.
