The capital experienced fairly standard temperature but drier weather last month, climate scientists say.

Getting near average temperatures and sunshine hours, Wellington received just three-quarters of its rainfall for March, records released today by the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research show.

It took the approach of Tropical Cyclone Lusi on March 16 to bring about the month’s hottest temperatures.

The mercury hit 30 degrees Celsius in both Paraparaumu and Wallaceville – the highest ever recorded for the month of March since records began in those areas.

Climate projections released yesterday showed a weather-as-usual pattern would continue for the next three months, with average temperatures and rain expected in Wellington.
