A monthly newsletter from the National Climate Centre.

September 2006 – Number 87

Wet in the south of the North Island, and in Bay of Plenty, Taupo, Wanganui, and around Christchurch; dry over much of the South Island. Near average temperatures in many regions. Cool spots in Otago and western Northland.

Outlook for September to November – normal or below normal rainfall; warmer than normal conditions likely in the east of the North Island. River and stream flows – a tale of two islands: high flows in the north and low flows in the south.
