ClimateWatch: AUGUST sees big highs and big lows + 15 maps and video | Weather report
AUGUST + SPRING OUTLOOK — There is no shortage of big highs and big lows in August in New Zealand and Australia, as La Nina continues to slowly look to come back at some point.
The long-term forecast for New Zealand is warmer than average with rainfall over the two main islands – particularly northern New Zealand, where at least another 100mm is expected over the next two weeks.
Large highs continue to move from Australia, but large lows are also mixed in.
This means that the word “variety” remains in the forecast with a good mix of sunny and mild days, and windy and more humid days. Usually, the variety of our weather is good for the economy, with most farmers and growers benefiting from a healthy mix of weather – usually anyway.
Here are the maps and more details on how AUGUST, SEPTEMBER and OCTOBER are going in our part of the world.
