High pressure systems can bring incredible sunny weather – but due to our mountains and ranges it can leave other regions cloudy. We have the latest maps tracking where the clouds will most likely be.
We also track any light showers that may be skirting some of our coastal fringes.
High pressure pushes clouds lower so you tend to get low level clouds in coastal areas while inland, especially higher up, is often sunniest.
Here are the latest cloud forecast maps from IBM’s Watson super computer – made exclusively for WeatherWatch.co.nz to display:
WEDNESDAY (Areas in green show showers, areas in blue show snow – down around Fiordland mainly).
THURSDAY (A few showers in Northland and around Fiordland again)
FRIDAY (Cloudiest weather shifts to the eastern side of NZ, there may even be a light shower around Gisborne area)
