Number of frost days for selected sites (1975–2013)
New Zealand's Environment Reporting Series: The Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand
The number of frost and hot days we experience each year can change in response to many climate factors, such as the warming pattern induced by El Niño. These numbers indicate the variations in our climate and are an important consideration in agriculture. They also affect our behaviour, for example, what we do to keep safe on icy roads or whether to use air conditioning to keep cool. Further information can be found in: Tait, A, Macara, G, & Paul, V.
