Situated on an isthmus and near the tropical weather patterns of the Pacific islands, Auckland experiences every type of weather—sometimes all in the same day. Winter (June-September) is a mixed bag of seasons: Warm westerly winds often make some winter days mild, but other days can be cold and very rainy. It never gets cold enough to snow (even frosts are rare). Average winter temperatures are around 58 F/13 C, though they can vary greatly.
Spring months are also unpredictable—either wonderfully calm and sunny or a tumultuous jumble of rain, cold and heat. Summer months (December-March) offer the most consistent weather. Average temperatures rise to 75 F/24 C, sometimes with high humidity levels. Rain showers are less frequent but still common.
