A monthly newsletter from the National Climate Centre.

April 2007 – Number 94

March – devastating floods in Northland, but, in marked contrast, the rest of the month was warm and sunny in most of New Zealand, with low rainfall in the east. Apart from in Northland, river and stream flows were low.

Outlook for April to June – possibly more southwesterly winds than usual over southern New Zealand, with average to below average air temperatures in the south. Rainfall near normal, except for lower than normal totals in the east of the South Island.
