Located in the “Roaring Forties”, Wellington is the southernmost capital city in the world and certainly lives up to its nickname of “Windy Wellington”, so don’t forget to bring a windproof jacket. That said, the city enjoys a temperate maritime climate and temperatures rarely fall below 4 °C. Typical daytime winter temperatures range from 10°C to 14°C and June and July tend to be the wettest months. During the summer months, from December to February, daytime temperatures range from 19°C to 24°C and although they rarely exceed 30°C, you should pack a hat and sunscreen. With an average of 2000 hours of sunshine per year, Wellington enjoys more sun than many of the other major centres. Late spring to early autumn is probably the best time to visit the city, depending on where else you are planning to go, but whatever the season, Wellington has much to offer visitors.
