Early Spring: Mild Overall

Seasonal Climate Outlook: August– October 2006

Early Spring: Mild Overall

The next three months are likely to see average or above average temperatures overall, according to the latest predictions from the NIWA National Climate Centre.

The National Climate Centre’s outlook for August–October also indicates normal or above normal rainfall is likely in the north and east of the North Island, with normal or below normal rainfall likely in the north and west of the South Island and near normal rainfall elsewhere. The Centre says soil moisture levels and stream flows are likely to follow the same pattern, with normal or above normal conditions in the north and east of the North Island, normal or below normal conditions in the north, west, and south of the South Island, and near normal soil moisture levels and stream flows elsewhere.

Spring is typically the windiest season, but NIWA says this year early spring may see slightly less windy conditions than normal, and possibly fewer days of very windy weather.
