We get most of our windy weather in the winter time from June to September, the direction of the wind being from the north west to the south.

During summer from October to May the wind comes from the south east to the north. Winter time is becoming very popular now with kiteboarding and windsurfers using Lord Howe's pristine lagoon.

Lord Howe Island is lucky to be situated in a warm current of water that breaks away from the east coast current.
This means that the water temperature stays between 18°C and 26°C.
Lord Howe Island has the most southern coral reef system in the world.  This keeps the climate temperate.

The winter time temperature varies between 15° C to 19°C,  

The summer time temperature varies between 20°C to 29°C.

A quote from the 1882
report about the climate on Lord Howe.  

" ....... to note
meteorological changes on the island and he informs me that the highest range of the thermometer he has noticed is 82°F in the summer and the lowest 52°F in the winter, a result that cannot be obtained in any other part of the world...."

Lord Howe has regular rainfall with an average of about 1.5m per year. Winter time being the wetter months.
