El Niño and your region

With El Niño forecast for the upcoming months you will likely experience higher temperatures, less rainfall, and stronger seasonal winds, compared to normal/average. The frequent west-to-northwest winds will likely contribute to these increased temperatures and longer dry spells.

You can also expect lower soil moisture levels and river flows.

For more information on El Niño and your region visit NIWA.
