Hello weatherwatch, living on the east coast of the South Island, where is our summer it’s been 3 weeks almost and most of us are getting robbed, as all mainly get a 2 week break. Our family haven’t hit the beach yet. What’s with the drizzle, it looks like it will be around for a few days. What’s our summer like, where our our dry hot days, when will it come. It seems this weather happens every year. Could u please give me the low down on what we will expect over the next month or so, before we all head back for work!!! I live in oamaru and ATM it ain’t pretty. We are heading to melding in early jan and then chch for mid jan. but I’m hoping the weather will improve before we head on our family holiday. Also what’s New Years like for the South Island. Mother Nature isn’t being kind!!!!

Looks like you’ll have to wait until next week for the weather to dry out. Certainly a high risk for more rain or showers up until Sunday or early Monday. In the first few days of January we think the winds will turn to a warmer direction and possibly remain a bit spring like with hotter, drier, weather returning but still the risk of another southerly change or two. Usually things settle properly over NZ around mid-Jan. NYE may be dry and pleasant at this stage for you. All the best!
