MetService Monthly Outlook - July 2022
The first few days of July offer a ‘relatively quiet’ pause in our weather.
An active Tasman Sea low then approaches the country from about the 5th, and although there is large uncertainty about timing and details, it is likely to bring a wet and windy regime to most places. There is also a decent potential for further South Island snowfall - keeping ski fields smiling. This recipe of ‘stormy’ Tasman lows and Southern Ocean fronts continues through until about mid-month, keeping rainfall and snowfall totals ticking along for most regions.
Once we hit mid-month, expect a major pattern change to colder weather (southerlies and Highs). The back half of July is predicted to be slightly colder than average, and precipitation should favour eastern areas of both Islands (including risk of further decent snowfalls in the South Island).
|Bottom Line: A stormy and wet July. Cooler than average temperatures in the second half of the month.
