Weather details in september

During the month of September, rainfall intensifies quietly as temperatures slowly increase. As this improvement in weather conditions occurs very slowly, the cold climate still characterizes the weather throughout September in New Zealand. Think about bringing warm clothes and raincoats, if deciding to stay here in September.

Septermber Climate of the North Island

Due to the rise in temperature, the heat on the northern island returns slowly. However, with the resurgence in precipitation, the rains are still part of the weather in New Zealand throughout September. According to the exposure of the localities facing the wind coming from the Sea of Tasman, the city of Auckland and that of Hamilton are the wettest.

On the east coast of the northern island, temperatures in the middle of the day are more comfortable. However, rainfall events are becoming more numerous.

September Climate of the South Island

The consequence of the rise in temperature is also palpable on the island of the south. Cities like Christchurch are now experiencing warmer temperatures. With the relative rarity of the rainy episodes, the atmosphere is accompanied by a pleasant freshness. High-altitude localities however, like Queenstown, remain disadvantaged by the cold - with temperatures still below zero. In the south, humidity persists.

perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

warning in september the weather is not the same depending on the city and regions of the country.

September is not the best month to visit New Zealand. The weather in Tauranga, Nelson, Auckland, Christchurch, Hamilton, Rotorua and Wellington is quite correct. The sun is not there all the time and you risk you to be soaked by rain regularly. Nevertheless, if you don't plan a beach and sun travel but rather nature excursions, this climate could be appropriate. In addition, there are certainly fewer tourists during this period.

It's much worse in Queenstown, Hokitika, Dunedin and Invercargill and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. It is not advisable to go to these areas in september.
