Facebook readers sound off about today

WeatherWatch’s Facebook readers gave us their view of weather across the country today, and it was quite varied.

Sue Robinson in West Melton said simply, “OMG SUN!!!!!!” Rachel Jennings in Timaru also said she saw lots of sunshine and “almost a clear sky”.  Readers in Christchurch like Jessica Parore also said they had a sunny day.

In fact, many places around New Zealand saw a fair amount of sunshine today.

Others, however, saw a lot of clouds and rain.  Ann Caldwell in Wellington called today “bleak”.  Sara Page in Hutt said it was “cold and showery”.  Karen Shaw and Helen Davies both said it was cool and rainy in South Wairarapa.

But Katrina Parker in Palmerston North was happy to get even just a little bit of sun that broke through the clouds.

More unsettled weather is on the way.  A series of fronts is due to affect the country over the next several days.  Each one will bring with it a chance for more precipitation.

Great start to the day with a clear morning here in lower Northland giving a fantastic view of Venus and Jupiter in the predawn eastern sky. After seeing this to start the day didn’t mind the weather becoming inclement later on.
