For those looking for accom, make sure ur room got aircon.

I tot it will be cooling coz now still end spring, so i went ahead and book a few accom that only have heater and no aircon. Big mistake. Room gets heated up by the sun during the day, and it is uncomfortably warm. And because the day is long, it only gets dark ard 8+pm. And take awhile for the room to be cool.
On days tt i got back early to cook dinner, i am sweating as i cook
Wah.. I don't even know if some of my accom have aircons. Is South Island quite warm in early summer?

I book all my accom from agoda, and it is stated whether aircon, heater, wifi, parking etc. are avail for the accom

It is starting to get warm in south. Daytime very sunny. Only cold at night

Not humid at all.
Daytime at most need windbreaker coz the wind can be chilly. But i am having sunny weather now. Not sure how cold it will be if it rains.
Night time slightly cooler. But just a jacket shld do

Just got back. Temperature at 6am is below 10. Very cold for me. Same for after 9pm. Daytime usually feels okay if youre in the sun or when youre hiking. Can wear t shirt and shorts. But i rather wear pants cause when the cold wind blows~ it's quite chilly. Was having lunch under shade in the open with just t shirt and pants, shaking towards the end.

Afternoon is quite hot without the wind. I didnt live in room, so not that sure about coming back to it in the evening. Maybe can open windows before going out

Think depends on which area also. 2 weeks ago i flew from auckland to Christchurch. No snow anywhere. Very comfortable temperature.

Today flying back. Sunny day again.

There is a saying in NZ about weather that goes like Four seasons in one day.

just came back last week. weather turning warmer.

in the day t-shirt and jeans is fine. temp will be close to 20 degrees. just that the sun is very scorching and day is long (sky turns dark at 9pm). can really feel the heat on your skin, so prepare sun screen + sun glasses + cap, and have long sleeves to cover up if your skin is sensitive.
