Parents may have to come up with creative ways to keep kids entertained during these school holidays as floods are forecasted for the first week.
NIWA has forecasted possible floods for the second week of July in their seasonal climate outlook, due to the increase of tropical moisture moving in this month.
They also say that temperatures are most likely to be warmer than average across all regions. While cold snaps and frosts will occur, their duration and/or frequency may be reduced due to a lack of southerly air flows.
Although there could be flood risks, rainfall is predicted to be near normal in most regions. West of Northland and the north of the South Island may experience slightly above average rainfall, however.
