Climate in New Zealand

New Zealand is located in Australia and Oceania. The country is washed by two seas, such as the Pacific Ocean, the Tasman Sea. New Zealand - has a fairly long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track 44 settlements and resorts.

Subtropical sea in the north and moderate sea in the south, average July temperatures (winter) - from +12 C in the north to +5 C in the south, average January temperatures - from +19 C in the north to +14 C in the south. In this case, the temperature and humidity on the western and eastern slopes of the mountains can vary quite strongly. The hottest months are January and February (up to + 27-30 C), the coolest month is July (in the south the temperature at this time can drop to 0 C). In mountainous areas, it is much colder at any time of the year, although warm oceanic air masses significantly level the influence of altitudinal zonation. Precipitation falls from 400 mm. per year on the east coast up to 3000 mm. in the west, while regardless of the season, their intensity is approximately the same. Snow in the mountains lies from November to March.Very high levels of insolation and winds blow almost constantly.

New Zealand: oceans and seas

We monitor the following oceans and seas that wash the country. Just go to the page for a specific reservoir and see the temperature in all settlements on the coast.

Find out the temperature of sea water in more than 12000 cities and resorts around the world. Water surface temperature values are available in real time. There is a forecast of water temperature changes for the next few days, as well as historical data of sea surface temperature are available for all days of the last years.

We use data from various sources, including National Centers for Environmental Information (NOAA), meteorological services of different countries, data received from more than a thousand buoys around the world, satellite systems for scanning the surface of the oceans and seas.
