Weather details in october

The month of October corresponds to the end of the austral summer in Oceania. As a result, temperatures are rising slowly but in most New Zealand locations, the climate still dominates New Zealand throughout October. Since this period is still characterized by high humidity, rainfall and showers are not an isolated climatic phenomena.

October in the North of the North Island

The beautiful sunny days still make it possible to describe the climatic conditions in northern New Zealand as good in October. Of course the rainy days are numerous but in the end, by focusing on the partially covered days, one has good sunny moments. It is enough to dress in accordance with the ambient temperature to feel comfortable.

October in the South of the North Islandr

Slightly cooler but enjoying beautiful sunny days thanks to its geographical location which makes it less humid, the city of Wellington has a weather throughout October in New Zealand that is relatively acceptable for outdoor activities. In fact, even if the rain is combined with the cloudy weather, the beautiful sun continues to dominate the climatic conditions.

October on the Southern Coast and the West Coast of the South Island

As the west coast and south coast of the South Island are the wettest in all of New Zealand, rainfall can be expected from time to time. Moreover, it is not uncommon to see moderate rains turn into torrential showers - if the climatic conditions are suitable. Moreover, this part of the island is distinguished by the freshness of the mornings.

October on the East Coast of South Island

Due to the freshness of the atmosphere, the climate throughout October in New Zealand is just suitable for outdoor activities. This will not prevent surfing enthusiasts from braving the waves. It is enough to be well equipped to enjoy the beautiful sunny days while facing the cold.

perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

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

Although it is not perfect the weather in New Zealand that month is, on average, quite good in Tauranga and Auckland. I allows to appreciate vacation in these places. And even why not take a little time to take a nap at the pool under the sun!

If you do not go lazing in the sun, but, for example for cultural tours or hiking, the cities of Nelson, Hokitika, Christchurch, Hamilton, Dunedin, Rotorua, Wellington and Invercargill have a quite correct weather for that in october. Eventually, it is not advisable to travel because the climate is pretty bad.
