A few harmless clouds

The skies aren’t perfectly clear over some parts of New Zealand today as a front approaches from the south west. 

The front – which is rapidly weakening – will bring a few showers to Southland later today.  High cloud can be seen across the South Island today ahead of the front while clouds in the eastern Tasman Sea push in to the west and north of the North Island.

Fog patches around Waikato and Auckland have also added to the cloudier skies. 

But despite the cloudy patches the weather will remain dry (and warm) across most of New Zealand today.

Sunny weather is expected tomorrow across the nation with sunny weather prevailing for next week too.

Grey with spots of drizzle here in Kapiti today, pleased to hear it may clear up tommorow, as I have a lawn that needs mowing and it’s growing more every time I look at it!
How about a weather quiz for the long weekend since there isn’t much happenning on the weather front??

I have been in the Manawatu/Wanganui area yesterday and today, and both days have been overcast with thick grey cloud. We had been hoping for a fine Labour Weekend…. any idea why this cloud is here and whether it’s likely to clear anytime soon? Thanks

There’s a fair bit of low cloud trapped under the high (we saw it a few days ago but hoped the wind direction would keep it offshore).  The cloud is trapped under the high (and the high is drifting eastwards so the clouds will just sit in the Manawatu/Wanganui area). Maybe another gloomy day but hopefully sunny spells later.  Tomorrow looks better.
