    Rain forecast today is expected to do little to alleviate bone dry conditions in Canterbury

    Rain forecast today is expected to do little to alleviate bone dry conditions in Canterbury


    Parts of the South Island experienced record breaking temperatures yesterday - Timaru smashed a 50 year January record of 37.5 degrees.

    However rain, and possibly hail is due in Christchurch today.

    But Fire and Emergency's Bruce Janes says not nearly enough is forecast to cease a high fire alert.
