Thursday's national forecast

Filed in:

High pressure will slowly work its way across the northern tip of the country today.  That will help to keep most of New Zealand dry and settled as we start the final week of autumn.

Wednesday's national forecast

Filed in:

It is a chilly morning out there, but it looks like things are going to be quite settled today.  High pressure will works its magic on New Zealand and provide a pleasant Wednesday, despite the frosty start.

Looking ahead

Filed in:

A ridge of high pressure appears to still be on track to take over our weather for this week.

There are some chances for rain over the next 5 days, but very few.


Sunday's national forecast

Filed in:

We will find ourselves in between weather systems today.  We will have the low off to our east and the high off to our west.

For most of us, it should be a dry and settled day.  For some though, it could be a rather wet day.


Looking ahead

Filed in:

Quiet weather will be settling in for the next several days.

A large ridge of high pressure will slowly move across the ditch…and then across the country as we head through next week.  That means that we are heading into a fairly settled pattern.


How wintry is it by you this morning?

How is it where you are this morning?

A very winter-like morning is under way across the country.  A cold and blustery south-west flow is keeping things very chilly this morning.  Higher elevations of the South Island have seen a bit of snow.  Icy gales are expected across the deep south.


Friday's national forecast

Filed in:

The cold south-west flow will continue across the country today.  Icy gales are expected for the deep south.  Snow will also affect parts of the South Island.  No road warnings are in effect at this time.


Looking ahead

Filed in:

High pressure will build in from Oz as we go through the next several days.  That means we should see some much calmer weather than what we have seen this week.

It doesn’t mean it’s going to be dry the whole time though.
