Auckland enjoys over 2000 hours of sunshine a year, with a maximum daily temperature averaging at 14.5 degrees centigrade in the month of July, and 23.7 degrees centigrade during February. The maximum and minimum temperatures that have been recorded are 32.4 and -2.5 centigrade.

The hills and volcanoes, proximity to the sea, and the land cover, all play a part in the climate of this area and as such variations can exist within the Auckland region.

Auckland is also known to have a relatively high level of rainfall occurring around the year with approximately 130 days annually.

Snow was recorded once and that was way back in 1939 and again on August 15th and 16th in 2011, much to everyones surprise.

If you visit the north in the North Island, Northland, you can enjoy an almost subtropical type of climate with sometimes humid summer climate and mild warm winter seasons. The north is the region of New Zealand that has the warmest climatic conditions across the two Islands.
