Oc­to­ber dry month

Whanganui Chronicle - - News -

Rain­fall was be­low av­er­age and soil mois­ture was also be­low av­er­age in Whanganui dur­ing the month of Oc­to­ber, Niwa’s cli­mate sum­mary says. That sit­u­a­tion is likely to con­tinue dur­ing the next three months. Tem­per­a­tures were about av­er­age in Oc­to­ber. They are ex­pected to stay that way or be warmer, with sev­eral very warm spells ex­pected for Novem­ber. There were more southerly winds than nor­mal dur­ing Oc­to­ber, but west­er­lies are ex­pected to pre­vail un­til Jan­uary. Sea tem­per­a­tures will be near or above nor­mal.
