The week continues in similar fashion to how it began – low temperatures, wet in parts, and reasonably settled around New Zealand – for winter!
Blue: Rain on the West Coast of the South Island
White: Frosty conditions to start in the inland north and south
A quick moving cold front passes over the country, bringing wet weather and lower temperatures in some places to start and finish the day.
Yellow: Warm and sunny in eastern regions of both islands
A ridge provides a mainly settled day, with reasonably high afternoon temperatures for eastern regions at this time of year – perhaps getting into the mid teens due to a west-northwest airflow.
Purple: Winds around coastal Southland blow strongly at times
Yellow: Warm once again in the east of the country
A northwest airflow starts to gather a bit of steam heading into the weekend, but it doesn’t look like causing any problems at this stage.
– Please note, the idea behind this update is to focus on the main weather highlights, which is why not all regions are mentioned.
