What's the Weather Like in Auckland in October

The month of October brings a warmer and more predictable climate to Auckland. Spring has definitely arrived with consistent sunshine and temperatures. Spring in Auckland, and most of New Zealand, tends to be mild and pleasant, but not hot. Visitors will still want to come prepared with layers and protection from the rain. However, the harbours and surrounding ranges regain life and once again locals and visitors are ready to take advantage of Auckland's natural wonders.


Throughout October the temperature continues to steadily rise. Visitors can expect that from day-to-day there might be dips in the daily temperature, but from the start of October to the end of October the weather will become more pleasant and warm. The average temperature for the month is 15°C (59°F).

Spring evenings and overnight in Auckland is still cool. The average low temperature falls to 12°C (54°F). Meanwhile, afternoons can be very warm due to the strong sunlight.


The sunlight is bright during the Auckland spring, and there are an average 6 hours of daily sunlight, which raises the average high temperature to 17°C (63°F).


Despite the more favourable temperatures during the month of October, there are actually more rainy days than in the September. With 17 rainy days throughout the month, October experiences as many days with precipitation and overcast skies as the autumn month of May. Visitors should prepare for afternoon storms, and on occasion, full days of rain.

Over these 17 days, October receives an average of 40 mm of rain. November will also receive a similar amount of precipitation, but the summer months of December, January and February will be drier.
