August

A monthly newsletter from the National Climate Centre.

August 2007 – Number 98

July – an unusual number of depressions brought floods and high winds to some places; calm and cold conditions in southern New Zealand for much of the month.

Outlook for August to October – air temperatures are likely to be average or above average in most regions, but with typical early spring cold outbreaks at times. Normal or below normal rainfall is expected in most regions, apart from the north and northeast of the North Island, where wet conditions are more likely.
