With our havoc causing low pressure system winding down we see a return to a westerly based airflow for the week ahead.
For those of you that thought summer had disappeared then you would be right as the seasons changed at the end of February, but it doesn’t mean some warmer days have totally gone as we get into the autumn spirit.
On Tuesday and Wednesday temperatures could well get into the low to mid 20’s about the eastern North Island. Temperatures may stick to the high teens about the eastern South Island however but it’s still much better then what we have had with the recent wet spell, but mind you it was much needed.
It hasn’t been cold though for many North Island places recently with temperatures sitting in the low 20’s, only problem being you’ve had all the rain and humidity that goes with it.
Personally I’m looking forward to some sunnier days here in Canterbury before winter sets in at the end of next month. And some farmers will want it too as while all the rain is good, we now need just a bit of warmth to put that moisture to good use and make the grass grow.
