Public Climate Briefings at Regional Council


This first of the summer climate briefings will be held at the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council Chambers on Tuesday 2 October 2018.

The briefings, run by the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, are open to the public and give an overview of what the weather is doing and how the region is coping through the summer months.   Video of the briefings will also be on this page.

HBRC scientists will present information on rainfall, river flows, groundwater (aquifer) levels, and soil moisture levels, as well as a forecast for the months ahead.  This information can be critical for farmers and growers to plan ahead.

HBRC is continuously monitoring rainfall, wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, solar radiation, potential evapotranspiration, soil moisture and soil temperature at around 18 climate stations, with numerous other sites measuring rainfall.

The public briefings are being held in the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council Chambers, 159 Dalton Street, Napier from 9.00-10.30 am.

Here are the dates for the public briefings:
