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

Anticyclonic conditions continue today bringing mainly settled weather, a front brushes the far south of the South Island however. Mainly settled and hot weather continues on Wednesday and Thursday.


Blue – Some morning rain about Fiordland may be a tad on the heavy side, by Fiordland standards it isn’t looking all that heavy however due to a lack of rain for some time now it is still of some interest.

Yellow – High’s reaching into the mid to late twenties for many parts of the country, early thirties for some eastern areas and perhaps inland Nelson.


Yellow – Looking hot for most places across the country with high’s in the late twenties, early thirties is possible for some inland North Island spots. The east coast of the South Island gets a slight reprieve due to some cloud cover.

A few isolated showers possible about Central Otago late afternoon / evening.


Another hot day on the cards with high’s in the mid to late twenties for most, especially just away from the coast. Early thirties for inland valleys and basins of the South Island, also inland parts of the North Island.

Please note, the idea behind this update is to focus on the main weather highlights, which is why not all regions are mentioned.
