Seasonal climate hub
Welcome to the seasonal climate hub of the Greater Wellington Regional Council. On this page you will find our seasonal climate and water summaries, containing the latest information available on the climate drivers that can influence our region.
Greater Wellington measures rainfall, river flows, groundwater levels, temperature, and soil moisture at many locations around the Wellington Region. To provide a summary of climate and water resources for each season we analyse the latest information from a combination of council, NIWA and MetService monitoring sites.
Check the current rainfall and soil moisture anomalies (updated daily).
Read and interact with the latest information on the seasonal climate tendency (updated every time there is a new seasonal outlook).
The current seasonal summary is for Winter 2020 (updated every season).
