Gisborne and Hawkes Bay GDD data has been updated and with the season closing shortly we can make some direct comparisons to previous years. As expected we finished with higher than average GDD and that matched higher than average temperatures. However it was a cool start to the season and most stats were running below average until December. Rainfall totals were near normal for most of the season but we have noticed a fall in rainfall through April. The current statistics are attached below.
