Long term forecast New Zealand
Forecasters predict a balmy finale to summer "but the news is bad for farmers.. below-average soil moisture levels, coupled with lower than normal rainfalls and river flows, especially south of a line from Buller to Marlborough.. Sea-surface temperatures were likely to be warmer than average, perhaps by as much as a degree, over the next few months" Press 9Jan08 & La Nina's big dry threatening farmers (+ photos) Herald 11Jan08
Long, dry summer in the east expected "little rain until February, signalling little relief for farmers already struggling with a spring drought. Parallels are being drawn with the long, hot summer of 1997-98, when Christchurch and the region sweltered in frequent 30deg-plus temperatures" Press 29Nov08
Blue Skies Weather & Climate Services Tony Trewinnard POBox22 Amberley Hot spell keeps lifeguards busy "weekend weather signalled the start of what could be a very warm summer.. 'What is unusual is the fact it's been warm and sunny all week, not just on isolated days'.. 'Our climate is quite changeable so any run of weather is relatively unusual and these are the types of temperatures you expect to see in mid-summer'.. Mid Canterbury Federated Farmers president Rupert Curd said the warm, dry conditions made it a testing time for farmers. 'It doesn't happen very often in November like this, this is quite extraordinary.' Irrigated farmers relying on river systems were particularly hard hit because of a 15 per cent water restriction in place. 'We don't know what's around the corner, a shower of rain to ease it or just it could just get hotter and restrictions will bite even harder'" The Press 27Nov07 + Blue Skies welcomes MetService/NIWA agreement BSWCS "NZ's second largest weather forecast provider.. 21 years in business - a history of service.. second only to that of MetService" scoop 28Nov07
