Anticyclone delivers the sunshine

In recent times we haven’t seen too many high pressure zones covering the country since Christmas but this weekend an anticyclone is moving in from the Tasman Sea and a vast majority of the country should see blue skies with not a lot of wind about.

Temperatures were very high yesterday for two thirds of the nation and today for the North island, inland areas may see the 30 degree mark eclipsed again.

The humidity was the talking point yesterday for northerners but as the high settles in, it shouldn’t feel quite so sticky.

Overnight, temperatures dropped to single figures in the far south to give a more autumnal feel and due to a pool of cool air from a southerly airflow, eastern and southern areas might not see the temperature rise too high today apart from the Southern Lakes district and Central Otago.
