Summer Climate Briefings get underway
This first of five planned summer climate briefings will be held at the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council Chambers on Friday 27 October 2017.
The briefings, run by the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, are open to the public and give an overview of what the weather is doing and how the region is coping through the summer months.
HBRC scientists will present information on rainfall, river flows, groundwater levels, and soil moisture levels, as well as a forecast for the months ahead.
