NIWA Predicts a long dry summer ahead
NIWA are predicting long dry spells for most of New Zealand for the reast of summer thanks to higher than normal air pressure. This is expected to continue to be a theme over the next little while. Abnormally dry conditions are occurring across northern Waikato, Auckland, and Northland. Above average temperatures are also favoured by NIWA. Summer temperatures started off on an average note during December but increasing warmth in our oceans, higher than normal pressure, and northeasterly winds will most likely result in a warmer than average January-March considered as a whole. Such conditions don't preclude cool snaps that last a few days!
