Changes in the Niue climate 

  • Temperatures have warmed and will continue to warm with more very hot days in the future.
  • Rainfall data since 1905 show no clear trends. Wet season rainfall is generally projected to increase over this century with more extreme rainfall days and fewer droughts.

  • Wave heights may decrease in December to March.
  • Sea level near Niue has risen and will continue to rise throughout this century
