InfoGraphic: The Main Weather News Highlights across NZ: Tue, Wed, Thu

An anticyclone brings mainly settled weather to the South Island today, a southerly airflow over the North Island ease during the day. Anticyclonic conditions for much of Wednesday although a northwesterly airflow develops about the lower South Island from afternoon. Still mainly anticyclonic on Thursday, leading to more mainly settled weather.


Blue – A frosty start to the day for both islands, especially the South Island.


Blue – Another frosty start to the day, this time especially about the North Island and upper South Island.


Still a bit chilly to start the day inland for some but not looking as bad as Tuesday and Wednesday. Watch for a risk of fog in the morning from Auckland through to the Central North Island.

Beyond the potential for frosts and fog in the coming days another main standout is the fact we are finally having some settled, dry weather. Many regions can expect plenty of sun this week also although as usualy with highs it isn’t exactly straight forward, there will be niggly bits of cloud about for some.
