Weather details in december

Since December is the wettest month of the year, it is expected to have rain in New Zealand - regardless of the destination chosen. As the intensity of the rains varies from region to region, the weather in New Zealand throughout December can be pleasant as in Christchurch and Wellington, suitable as in Oakland or unfavorable like Hokitika.

December in the North of North Island

From the outset, the weather in the north of the country seems to be dominated by the relatively abundant rainfall. In fact, by totaling the sunny days and the cloudy but dry days, we have several pleasant days - suitable for outdoor activities. Since temperatures between 16° C and 22° C favor a mild atmosphere, climatic conditions in the north of the country are acceptable.

December in the South of the North Island

The geographical location of Wellington keeps the city free from humidity and this translates into very few rainy days. As a result, the weather is dominant over the other climatic conditions and it is therefore pleasant throughout December in New Zealand. All the more so as the mild temperatures are suitable to recharge under nice conditions.

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

Apart from the locality of Hokitika which faces the alternation of showers and torrential rains, the rest of the localities located on the western coast and the southern coast of the South Island enjoy a climate throughout December in Nova Scotia, New Zealand that is fairly lenient. The fresh atmosphere blends perfectly with the gentle sun to promote a feeling of well-being.

December on the East Coast of South Island

Like Wellington, the location of Christchurch allows to benefit from pleasant climatic conditions. For this reason in December, due to the low intensity of the rains, the sun makes the days already comfortable. Due to the temperatures varying between 12° C and 20° C, the days are characterized by a fresh atmosphere.
