Strong high pressure continues to control our weather today. But, not everyone will have a dry and settled day.
Thanks to the onshore flow created by the circulation around the high, a few areas will likely see a few spits of light precipitation.
Northland and the Coromandel Peninsula have already seen some rain during the overnight hours. That could continue through this morning and into this afternoon.
Hawkes Bay and Gisborne have also seen some light precipitation during the overnight. This should wrap up this morning. Dry weather is expected from about mid-morning.
On the South Island, Westland could end up seeing the rogue patch of drizzle. Otherwise a mainly cloudy sky is expected there.
Probably the biggest news on this Friday, as opposed to the last few Fridays, is that we aren’t talking about the possibility of a rough weekend ahead. There will likely be a few showers about, mainly for Central Otago and inland Southland. But no gales, no heavy rain and no thunderstorms are expected.
