Weather Video: One last settled day before fronts return for Labour weekend

Today is looking mainly settled for most, but it must be said that mainly settled doesn’t always mean mainly sunny. Some about the west of the North Island are probably having a fairly cloudy day today. A northwesterly airflow develops across the lower South Island ahead of a front which moves onto Southland later in the evening or overnight. This front continues northwards on Saturday reaching the lower North Island later in the evening.

Sunday sees a west to southwesterly airflow lie across the country bringing cloudy areas and the odd shower in the west while it’s drier out east for the most part, just a shower or two possibly affecting Southland and Otago at times.

On Monday, the day off we all hope will be sunny; well for the upper North Island it’s looking a bit wet unfortunately. You’ll be better off about the lower North Island. The West Coast of the South Island sees areas of rain with a chance of heavy falls meanwhile in the east a southwest change pushes northwards during the day bringing showers.
