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.
