New Zealand has recorded its warmest winter on record.

For the three months from June, July and August 2021, the average temperature was 9.8C, according to New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA).

This is a huge 1.3C above the long-term average and higher than the previous record set in 2020.

Scientists in New Zealand have been keeping records since 1909. Most of the warmest have come in the last decade.

NIWA also said that snowfall was well below average this winter, especially in lower area. This could make for lower river levels later in the year because there would be less snowmelt.

There were also more extreme weather events, including severe flooding in some places and dry spells in others.
