Weather to go

Christchurch has a dry, temperate climate with the least amount of rainfall for any of New Zealand's regions. Warm temperatures in summer are regulated by cool sea breezes which makes it the perfect destination for outdoor activities all year around. During summer the sun shines as late as 9.30pm and the days are an average temperature of 22°C. In winter the frosty mornings are often succeeded by bright, sunny days with little or no wind, however the nights can be extremely chilly. Snow fall usually occurs once or twice a year on the hill suburbs of Christchurch and every second year on the plains.
