El Niño and your region

With El Niño forecast for the upcoming months you will likely experience higher temperatures and stronger seasonal winds, compared to normal/average.

Inland and southern Canterbury, and east Otago, may experience periodic wetter than normal conditions when rain bands may “spill over” the main divide. Rivers that are fed from the main divide may carry those spillover rains and experience flooding.

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