    Aucklanders are in for an extremely dry spring

    Aucklanders are in for an extremely dry spring


    MetService's long-range weather forecast is for little rainfall for the next few months.

    Auckland's already had 40 per cent less rainfall than normal between November last year and this May.

    Meteorologist Georgina Griffiths says rain events are few and far between.

    She says New Zealand has suffered from intense and slow moving high pressure systems this year and last.
