A perfect weekend of weather…except…

A large high normally means settled weather but that’s not quite the case this weekend – at least not for North Islanders.

The high yesterday strengthened over the South Island and is expected to do so again today.  This means a frosty morning this morning and more frosts tomorrow under clear skies and little to no wind.

However the high won’t completely cover the North Island – and a developing low north east of the country will create a squash zone over much of the north – especially north eastern regions.

So while the weather would be described by many as ‘perfect’ this weekend a strong south easterly wind will keep a lid on temperatures in the North Island and perhaps make things a little unpleasant in areas exposed to the wind.

Winds should ease over the North Island during Sunday then start to shift more easterly on Monday.

Tasman sea highs arnt very often fine in Auckland (exception a low pressure system near kermadecs) but theyre much better east of the country.
