Weather details in april

Weather conditions in New Zealand vary according to destination. In most parts of the North Island, temperatures are relatively mild. Even if the rain is sometimes abundant, the weather in New Zealand throughout April is favorable to the practice of many kinds of outdoor activities. In the South Island on the other hand, temperatures drop rapidly to the point that wearing warm clothes is advised in the morning.

April in Auckland and the North of the North Islandl

With temperatures ranging from 15° C to 21° C, the atmosphere is rather mild while humidity continues to affect the climate. One must think about bringing comfortable clothes to enjoy the days. The weather throughout April in New Zealand translates, in fact, by a pleasant presence of the sun but also by the alternation of cloudy weather and rain.

April in Wellington and the South of the North Island

The thermometer in Wellington is a few degrees Celsius lower than the temperatures recorded in the north. Thus, the atmosphere can be very fresh in the morning but relatively comfortable by midday. Either way, one can count on the magnificent climatic conditions to spend an exquisite stay in the southern part of the northern island.

April on the South and West Coast of the South Island

Given the relative proximity of the South Island with the Arctic Circle, it is normal to expect a cooler climate throughout April in New Zealand. As a result, warmth drops rapidly in this part of the island so that morning temperatures are around 10° C. As we approach noon, they rarely exceed 17° C.

April on the Eastern Coast of the South Island

The climatic conditions on the east coast of the South Island are somewhat similar to those of other parts of the island. The morning temperatures are cool enough to freshen with the hours: a light sweater is enough to feel comfortable in the middle of the day. As the rains are rarer here, one can count on beautiful sunny days.
