State of the Climate 2013

This report describes month-to-month and seasonal-scale variability in the New Zealand climate over the three years 2010-2012.

It is the second in a series of documents to be published every two to three years describing recent climate fluctuations in New Zealand, and how they relate to what's going on at broader scales in the climate system, across the southern hemisphere, and the globe.
