AUGUST + SPRING OUTLOOK — There’s no shortage of both large highs and large lows this August in NZ and Australia while La Nina continues to slowly look to return at some point.
The long range forecast for New Zealand leans warmer than average with rainfall carrying on across both main islands – especially northern NZ, where at least another 100mm is forecast in the next two weeks ahead.
Large highs continue to move in from Australia, but large lows are also mixed in.
This means the word “variety” remains in the forecast with a good mix of sunny and mild days, and windy & wetter ones. Usually variety in our weather is good for the economy with most farmers and growers receiving a healthy mixture of weather – generally speaking anyway.
Here are the maps and more details for how AUGUST, SEPTEMBER and OCTOBER are all shaping up in our part of the world.
