Holiday weekend off to a settled start for many

High pressure has kicked off the Labour Day weekend with a fairly settled day for most regions.  Rain is pretty difficult to find today.

One region that has seen some precipitation today is the western South Island.  Westport, Greymouth and Hokitika have all seen some shower activity.  This will probably continue for the rest of the afternoon.  Tonight, the precipitation will likely become more widespread.

The lower South Island has also seen some rain today with reporting that Invercargill has had just over 1mm since midnight.

The rest of the country is seeing a mix of sun and clouds, mostly clouds.

Some of the sunnier spots today include Gisborne, Taupo, Hanmer Springs and Kaikoura.  But even in these areas there are still plenty of clouds landscaping the sky.

Temperatures at last report ranged from 12 at Hokitika to 19.4 at Whangarei.

I have to amend the last part – high cloud has moved in and thickened significantly now. But the inaccuracy of the forecast I mentioned remains.

Yes, and that 1mm fell just after midnight – it’s been dry since then.

It’s a bit different from the Deep South Weather.  Their website reports shows .2 mm of rain in the last hour.

Must be an error. My sister lives in that suburb and she said it’s been dry.
