NIWA has completed their September Climate Summary highlighting the extremes and which place was warmest, coldest, sunniest, wettest etc, based on the data they make public through their network.

September’s highlights include:

  • Highest temperature 25 degrees Christchurch
  • Lowest temperature -6.1 Mt Cook
  • Most rain in a day: 154mm North Egmont
  • Auckland was the warmest, wettest and sunniest of the six main centres in September
  • Richmond, Blenheim, Takaka and Lake Tekapo are the sunniest spots so far this year in that order

Does NIWA produce these every month? It would be cool to see some sort of infograph that showed these stats changing month by month, particularly the extremes in the top figure.

Hi Jordan, yes this is one of their new services that we fully support as it’s about the people and not about them making yet another quick buck on the public that already fund their existance. These infographics are terrific – but as for what you’re asking for you’d need to contact NIWA directly.
