Weather details in july

The month of July is in the middle of the austral winter, so cold weather dominates the climate throughout July in New Zealand. As climatic conditions depend on topography and geographical location, the northern island enjoys a gentle and pleasant atmosphere. On the South Island, temperatures are very low.

July Climate of the North Island

The climatic conditions of the northern island are mild but depending on the localities, the humidity content may or may not be high. The same is true for temperatures. For this reason, take the time to check the weather in New Zealand throughout July depending on the destination in order to be sure to enjoy the best conditions.

If staying in Auckland, the capital city, one will be able to enjoy mild and comfortable temperatures - especially in the middle of the day but must still face the rains more often.

On the east coast of the island, the mornings are colder but there will be sunshine as the rains are relatively rare.

July Climate of the South Island

If one's itinerary takes them to the South Island, have warm clothes on hand. The temperatures are very cold even if they rarely go below zero and despite the relatively low humidity.

warning in july the weather is different depending on the city and regions of the country.

July is not the best month to go to in New Zealand. The weather in Tauranga, Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington is just ok. The sun is not there all the time and you might make you wet by rain regularly. However, if you don't plan a beach and relaxation travel but rather visiting museums or hiking, this climate may be good enough for you. In addition, there are surely fewer tourists dyring this month of july.

But it gets worse: in Queenstown, Nelson, Hokitika, Christchurch, Dunedin, Rotorua and Invercargill and surrounding areas where the climate is even worse. It is not advisable to travel to these areas in july.
