Weather Video: Big high brings gloom for some, warm sun for others


Filed in:

A big high is crossing the country at the moment - in fact there are two areas of high pressure moving in.

However it’s not a perfect set up with plenty of anti-cyclonic-gloom (low cloud trapped under the high) and this is affecting many western areas like Auckland and Waikato, Taranaki to Manawatu. Eastern areas, like Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawke’s Bay, Wairarapa and Marlborough have spectacular sun for many.

On Thursday a weak southerly change will cool things down over the South Island with a few isolated showers about central New Zealand.

On Friday those showers drift further north up the North Island but are hit and miss.

The weekend sees a large low in the Tasman Sea but apart from the West Coast most places won’t be affected by it on Saturday - but over Sunday and Monday a wet nor’easter is likely across many areas.
