Upcoming week still looking fairly settled

Filed in:

We will see lots of lows hanging around New Zealand next week, but it doesn’t look like any of them will actually get close enough to unsettle our weather.

But, of course, there is an exception to that rule.  The exception is the lower and eastern regions of both islands.

May 2012 in review

Filed in:

May turned out to be pretty sunny and a little cool for much of the country.

Looking ahead; Drying out for early next week...maybe.

As we head into the weekend and look ahead to next week, things will be settling down for the country.

Friday's national forecast

Filed in:

It will be a bit unsettled today for the western and southern sections of both islands.

Thursday's national forecast

Filed in:

The weather will be a bit more settled across the country today.

There will still be chances for precipitation, but most of what falls will be in the form of rain.  The deep south could see a few showers this morning.  Inland Otago should be dry during the day today, but showers could develop tonight.

Main cities hit by weather

Filed in:

Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch have been hit by weather elements over the last twelve hours.

Auckland saw kingtides affect lowlying areas last night over some motorways which resulted in mainly minor flooding and blustery conditions were also a factor. Further high tides between 8 and 9 this morning could also be an issue for drivers.

Wednesday's national forecast

Filed in:

A very unsettled day is expected across most of the country.

A sunnier Queens Birthday forecast

Filed in:

The rather gloomy predictions for tomorrow are being quickly replaced by sunshine and mild temps.

It looks like the rain chances for tomorrow will be confined to the after sunset hours for most areas.  Daytime rain is possible for Gisborne, Hawkes Bay and the West Coast.

How is your Sunday?

Filed in:

How has Sunday's weather been for you?  We started  off with some showers in some parts of the South Island and a renegade thunderstorm early this morning near Auckland. 

How do you think this weather stacks up to past Queens Birthday weekends?  Is this weather about what you would expect for this time of year?

We would love to hear your thoughts.

Aussie low will bring rain and wind this week

Low pressure that has been soaking eastern Australia over the last few days is headed our way and looks to do the same to us.
