New Zealand Weather
Reports and Forecasts

The weather in New Zealand can be changeable, and experiencing four seasons in one day is quite possible.

The north of New Zealand is mainly sub-tropical while the south is temperate with around 10°C temperature variation between winter and summer. Central Otago in the lower South Island has temperature extremes similar to a continental climate.

The warmest months are December through to March, and the coldest, from June to August. The average maximum temperatures range between 20 - 25°C (68-77°F) in summer and 10-15°C (50-60°F) in winter.

The west coast, and areas west of the mountain ranges, generally record higher rainfall than the east which usually experiences fairly dry summers and higher sunshine hours. Except for high country areas, snow is relatively rare in both the North Island and the north of the South Island.
