A large high that has brought stunning weather to Sydney this week is trying its best to bring settled weather here for Saturday – but it’s not going to succeed in any great manner.
While parts of the country will enjoy some sunny weather this weekend the high will have very little to do with it. Pushing eastwards from New South Wales – where it has brought fresh mornings and stunning days – it will only clip the upper North Island.
In fact, the centre of the high won’t cover land, instead just as it’s about to the incoming southerly low will nudge the high back northwards again into the sub-tropics.
Unlike the wind that was created earlier this week by the large departing high the next belt of wind is entirely driven by a large low coming out of the Southern Ocean.
This will crank up across the country across the weekend.
Meanwhile today the remnants of the low that crossed the country earlier in the week will remain to the east of the North Island bringing more rain and showers into south eastern areas.
Light rain and a few showers may also push into the West Coast.
