Weather details in august

In addition to the cold weather that characterizes the southern winter, a slight increase in precipitation distinguishes the climate throughout August in New Zealand. However, depending on the locality, this increase in rainfall intensity may or may not be determinant for the quality of New Zealand's weather in August. Thus, on the northern island, the days in Auckland are rather rainy when compared to those of the localities located on the island of the south.

Climate of the North Island throughout August

The locations exposed to the west are disadvantaged by the abundance of rain because the rainy episodes occur at any time of the day. Despite the leniency of the mild temperatures, the beautiful sunny days are rare.

The cities to the east and south will allow for the enjoyment of a few sunny moments. Even if the humidity is relatively low in these regions, the rains still make their appearances.

Climate of the South Island throughout August

On the South Island, the weather conditions are characterized by cold and dry days - unlike those in the north where the rains are abundant and the days warmer. This favors more sunny days. Whatever the destination, wearing comfortable clothes will ensure a pleasant feeling because with morning temperatures oscillating between 5° C and ° C, the hours after sunrise are still cold.
