WEATHER AND CLIMATE OF MURCHISON

Murchison is set in a basin in the top of the South Island. It is only 170 m above sea level but it seems much higher as it is surrounded by mountains and you drive over passes to get here.

The West Coast rain usually peters out before it reaches here and without the sea breezes Murchison enjoys warm dry summers. Days often start with some fog or river mist which will soon burn off to bright summer days. It can be in the thirties in the afternoon but it always cools off in the evening leaving a lovely temperature for sleeping.

Heavy rains and consequent river flooding can happen at any time of the year but these events are usually short-lived and things get back to normal quickly.
