Where should you go in New Zealand in january when it comes to the weather?

Remember:
The climate in New Zealand in january ranges from perfect to tolerable depending on the region and city.

The month of January is one of the best moments to discover the whole New Zealand territory in good climatic conditions. Rains are indeed relatively low and temperatures pleasant. However, there are some differences in climatic characteristics, due in particular to the geographical location and also to the altitude of each locality. Still, the weather in New Zealand throughout January is pleasant.

January in the North of North Island

With daytime temperatures between 17° C and 23° C, the city of Oakland as well as the localities north of the North island of New Zealand enjoy a pleasant and gentle atmosphere. Even if the days are sometimes punctuated by transient rains that rarely change into intense showers, the beautiful sunny days define the weather throughout January in New Zealand in this region.

January in the South of the North Island

Less damp than the north, the south of the North Island takes advantage of its geographical location because it is immune to marine currents that greatly influence humidity. Thus, one can count on many beautiful days. On the other hand, the days are cooler and temperatures rarely exceed 20° C - even in the hottest hours of the day.

January on the South Coast and South West Coast of South Island

As the South Island is geographically closer to the Antarctic polar circle, it is usual to have mild temperatures even in January. With temperatures stagnant below 20° C at the best times of day, it is better to possess warm clothes. This is true even if the beautiful sunny days take precedence over the rainy ones.

January on the East Coast of South Island

The January climate in New Zealand on the east coast is milder compared to the west coast. Not only are the days slightly more pleasant - thanks to a few degrees Celsius more, but the rains are rather rare and favor the succession of beautiful days that are both bright and pleasant.
