Some are suggesting Winter 2017 seems colder than 2016 and WeatherWatch.co.nz’s latest poll suggests most have had a frost this year.
74% of New Zealanders say they have had a frost so far in 2017.
But only a tiny 10% have had more than 10 frosts.
Autumn was especially wet in many regions, with sub-tropical airflows and ex-cyclones helping keep many frosts away. Winter has seen more southerlies and some heavy frosts but perhaps compared to a couple of decades ago conditions don’t seem so frosty this year.
