Change the only constant in week ahead

The week ahead is looking changeable for pretty much everyone, as systems are set to come and go, meaning no real continuity – but plenty of spring variation.

Right now, a ridge lies over the South Island, while the low pressure system to the country’s northeast is dominating weather for the north, with an easterly quarter airflow resulting in a cloudy East Coast, and anywhere north of Hawke’s Bay should expect a shower or two on Tuesday.

The upper North Island can expect some patchy high cloud for Tuesday, while the lower third is in for a breezy couple of days – with those east to southeasterly winds pushing across from the low pressure system (see map).

The South Island is looking mostly sunny for the start of a new week, with light winds tending northwest about Southland and Otago.

Cloud and drizzle are once again on the cards for Fiordland – and Wednesday should see northeasterlies building along the east of the South Island, with high cloud picked to move north from Otago and northerlies should freshen in the west.
