New Zealand Weather
Located in the southern hemisphere, New Zealand’s seasons are opposite to those found in the northern hemisphere.
Weather in New Zealand is totally dependent on whether one is on the North or South Island. The North Island enjoys a subtropical climate with winters characterized by heavy rainfalls. The South Island varies more than the North with warm summers but it can also experience cool winters with temperatures dropping between -10 to -15 degrees celsius.
Most places in New Zealand receive more than 2,000 hours of sunshine a year and during the summer months, people can enjoy the sun until around 9:00 at night.
