Cool and clear – Thursday’s #WeatherRisks and your main centre outlook

After a cool and settled Wednesday, the large anticyclone sitting over the country will continue to dominate our weather, with more of the same on the way on Thursday.

There may be a few light frosts around this morning in sheltered inland parts of both islands, though nothing like the record lows we saw in June!

On the West Coast, Fiordland is looking at some potentially heavy rain, although for locals in that part of the country will know what to expect – while coastal Southland can expect some fairly stiff sea breezes from the southwest.

A carbon copy of Wednesday – sunny, clear and northerly quarter winds with a top temp of around 14 degrees.


Clear and sunny with gusty northerlies and a high in the early teens.



It’s shaping up to be a mainly sunny day in the early teens temperature wise, with light winds near the coast, and northwesters further inland – while high cloud will move in from afternoon.
