    A mild start to autumn is on the cards, but there is a 70 per cent chance a cyclone will make its presence felt in the next three months, according to National Climate Centre predictions. The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (Niwa) outlook for February-April predicts a mild start to autumn with average or above average temperatures in all regions, and lighter than normal westerly winds. Although there may be cold outbreaks from time to time, temperatures should be relatively mild overall. For the rest of the tropical cyclone season through to April, normal cyclone activity is expected, meaning a 70 per cent chance of a cyclone affecting the country between now and April.

    Regional predictions for the next three months:
    ? Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty: Above average temperatures and near normal rainfall, with normal stream flows and soil moisture.
    ? Central North Island, Taranaki, Wanganui, Manawatu, Wellington: Average or above average temperatures, normal or below normal seasonal rainfall and soil moisture levels, and below normal stream flows.
    ? Gisborne, Hawke's Bay, Wairarapa: Average or above average temperatures, normal rainfall with normal soil moisture levels and stream flows.
    ? Nelson, Marlborough, Buller: Average or above average temperatures, with normal rainfall, soil moisture levels and stream flows.
    ? West Coast, Alps and Foothills, Inland Otago, Southland: Average or above average, seasonal temperatures with near normal rainfall, normal soil moisture levels and stream flows.
    ? Coastal Canterbury, East Otago: Near average temperatures with normal or below normal rainfall and soil moisture levels and below normal stream flows.
