HBRC scientists will present information on rainfall, river flows, groundwater levels, and soil moisture levels, as well as a forecast for the months ahead.

HBRC is continuously monitoring rainfall, wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, solar radiation, potential evapotranspiration, soil moisture and soil temperature at approximately 18 climate stations with numerous other sites measuring rainfall.

The public briefings are being held in the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council Chambers, 159 Dalton Street, Napier from 8.30-10am.
Here are the dates for the public briefings:
