Default Rate this AWESOME climate: Nelson, New Zeland

Thanks to RWood, i might have found the perfect year round climate for me! This being amazing Nelson, New Zeland: clima

AMAZING stats all over the place!!

First, sunshine hours: Knowing that NZ is kinda weak in this aspect, the near 2500 sunshine hours of Nelson seem PERFECT! I actually live in a climate with similar sunshine hours and i found that number to be the perfect number for sun. And the distribution is also great, even year round, with sunny winters as well as summers!

Summers: 22 c average high for both hottest month and little above 10c of average lows! Most people will find this too cool to be summer, but i find it amazing! In reality, it could be just a bit warmer (maybe 2 more c in highs and lows), but its actually great!! I could get easily used to this awesome summers!

Winters: with highs around 12/13c and lows around 1/3c, this seem like a winter shaped for my climate tastes! Just awesome! Plus, its sunny!

Precipitation numbers are great and, while it is a bit humid, it is so awesome in all the other aspects that i forgive that


This gotta be the most perfect climate in real life, imo

what do u guys think??

(I think sanfel will like this)

Sophie, the humidity data is for early mornings (9am) - later daytime humidities would be lower, and sea breezes mitigate any sense of stuffiness most of the time in the warmer months.

Clima's sun average is too low (even 1971-2000 with the inferior exposure till 1995 was over 2400). The average for 1982-2011 was almost exactly 2480, still rising for reasons explained earlier.

You can get slightly hotter summer days by moving a few kms further from the coast, if that's considered desirable.

Of course for real heat lovers, this temperate climate is much too cool all year round.

Rainfall is under 1000mm and it's not a drizzling kind - hours of rainfall would be considerably less than the average implies.

C+ from me. My only major complaint is winter nights are too cold. At least it's reasonably sunny

Sophie, there was a thread on Napier - 200 fewer hours of sunshine, but a little warmer than Nelson year-round.

B- A little warmer year-round than would be my ideal, but I think I would be comfortable there most of the time. I'd definitely prefer a little bit cooler winter, and summer looks fine but a little cooler would still be better. Not bad.
