Mum's Day could be a bit wet for parts of NZ

A few showers will be possible for Gisborne and Hawkes Bay on Saturday, but otherwise the weekend should start off dry.

High will give super view of "Supermoon"

Filed in:

This weekend’s “Supermoon” should be easy to view from anywhere in the country thanks to the big ridge of high pressure.

The high that has been keeping our weather dry, settled and a bit chilly should provide some clear to partly cloudy skies when the Supermoon rises late tomorrow afternoon.

Saturday's national forecast

Filed in:

Most of the nation should see a dry day ahead and Saturday sport shouldn't be affected by the weather however some cloud and a few showers could pop up in eastern parts and that's mainly about Gisborne but low cloud and patchy drizzle could lurk further afield over eastern coastlines.

Friday's national forecast

Filed in:

Another quiet day is expected for the country.

Large high pressure is positioned squarely over New Zealand today.  That will keep our settled weather in place for today…and right through the weekend.

Thursday's national forecast

Filed in:

After a rather winter-like start, most areas will see a dry and settled day.

Our main weather-maker, a ridge of high pressure, will continue to slide slowly east today.

Wednesday's national forecast

Filed in:

A big high pressure ridge moving over the country will keep most areas dry and settled today.

Severe weather potential for Sunday

Filed in:

A strong cold front is expected to move south to north across the South Island Sunday.  This front will be the focus for wind and rain.  In some parts of the South Island and lower North Island, the wind could reach severe gale strength and the rain could be intense.

Looking ahead

Filed in:

It appears next week will be a very quiet weather week.

Monday will start the week off with some showery conditions for the western sections of both islands early in the day.  Then some clearing should settle in during the afternoon.

Cold front sweeps the clouds away
