3am Extra Early Edition — Anzac Day weather will be remarkably similar to Saturday across much of New Zealand.
Again northern NZ will be mostly dry but early showers will be clearing. Again the West Coast has wet weather and again the east is mostly if not completely dry.
Showers will likely clear very early this morning in the upper North Island but isolated showers are possible across the entire island this morning – but mainly dry. In the South Island rain and showers will move up the West Coast and also into Southland this morning.
Westerly winds will also again be blowing across most of the country, but the lower and eastern South Island will be windiest with gusts to gale force in some exposed places later today.
It will be mild for many eastern and northern parts of NZ but the lower South Island will be colder than average today with some places inland struggling to reach 10 degrees (like Queenstown).
There’s no significant thunderstorm risk today but a low risk for some parts of Southland and the West Coast.
See your HOURLY forecasts for more details.
We hope you have an enjoyable Anzac Day.
