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

What's happening where you are?

A band of showers continues to push slowly across New Zealand early this morning.  There is a chance for some heavier falls with this band.  Also some thunderstorms are possible as well as gusty winds.

So how are things going by you?

Our last settled day for a while

Filed in:

These last few weeks have been gorgeous for most of us.

If you like sunshine and pleasant temperatures, that is.

It seems like the entire month of April has been one long streak of dry and sunshiny weather here here in Waikato.

Unsettled weekend?

Here’s the latest on what is shaping up to be a rather unsettled weekend and beginning of next week.

Thursday's national forecast

Filed in:

One more day of quiet and settled weather is in store for today.

A Tasmanian low is taking over the control of our weather starting later today.  That means precipitation chances will go up for much of the country.

How's your ANZAC day?

Filed in:

How are things where you are on this ANZAC day?  It's a been a bit on the cloudy side in many areas, but the sunshine is really busting through.  At least that's how it looks about Hamilton and Te Awamutu.  Auckland too.
