A settled Sunday for most

Filed in:

Most of New Zealand should be looking at a dry and settled Sunday.  The area of high pressure that brought the dry weather in today will also be responsible for a nice day tomorrow.

There are a few chances for showers tomorrow.  Wairarapa, Hawkes Bay and Gisborne could see a few rogue showers.  Coastal sections of Southland could also see a few showers.  Chances are small though.  At the very least, these areas will probably not see as much sunshine as will the rest of the country.

Temperatures on Sunday should push into the lower and middle teens for highs in most areas.  Highs about Southland and Central Otago will struggle to reach the 10 degree mark once again.

This area of high pressure will be our main weather-maker for the next several days.  It looks like dry and settled weather will remain in place for both islands through Wednesday.  Rain chances arrive on the South Island on Thursday.  The high may keep the North Island dry through Friday.  But it looks like all of New Zealand will be into some rather unsettled weather by the time we get to next Saturday.

Nice to have a 'blue-dome

Nice to have a 'blue-dome day' - a quote from the late Augie Auer - for today after a week of clagg.
