East verses West

Weather conditions are today quite different from one coast to another as a windy, showery, patch of weather moves up the east coast.

Near gale southerlies are affecting Wellington with showers spreading up Hutt valley.  Showers are also affecting most places from Christchurch to Gisborne.

But the air flow is helping create more stunning weather along the west coast from Fiordland to Northland.  Fresh southerlies are blowing across Auckland however it’s sunny and warm in sheltered places. 

The stronger winds will keep frosts at bay over much of the North Island for the next two nights while a high spreads into the South Island.

Let us know what it’s like where you are – post a new comment below.

Day has gone quite gloomy with a cold Southerly so not as pleasant. We are showing around 13 deg here at 3:30.

A much warmer night with no frost here in Whangarei, not quite as stunning as yesterday with a cool breeze from the S or SW and puffy clouds floating around. No complaints though as still a great day.
