Raglan’s climate and weather
Two significant features influence the climate and weather in Raglan. The first, Mount Karioi and the other hills around the harbour provide some shelter from the prevailing winds. The second is the ocean, which tends to moderate the temperature, cooling the heat of summer and resisting the cold of winter.
These two features result in a microclimate in and around Raglan, that can result in significantly different weather than in Hamilton or Auckland. There are usually one or two light frosts over winter. A winter frost signals a sunny day and daytime temperatures climb into the mid teens. Around the Spring equinox in late September/ early October, winds can be fairly strong.
The seasons in Raglan are:
- Spring – September, October, November
- Summer – December, January, February, March
- Autumn – April, May
- Winter – June, July, August
