Whilst there are many hoping for rain, there are many others who are looking forward to dry and settled conditions for the holiday weekend.
Mother Nature is not disappointing those looking for quiet weather.
WeatherWatch.co.nz Facebook readers are reporting mainly dry and summery conditions today. Prue O’Neill says it’s hot again in Omarama. Suzie McAnelly said it was already warm in Invercargill at 10 o’clock this morning. Tamzin Mackley says “another beautiful day in Otaki”. Andrew Hmablyn says some big fluffy clouds are starting to fill the sky after a sunny start in lower Taranaki.

Andrea Hammond told us that it is cooler and windy in Rotorua. She adds that it’s a nice temp for the annual A&P show.
In Auckland and Christchurch some decent wind is being reported. Catherine Johnson says it’s a nice day in Christchurch but less wind would be nice. In Whangarei, Gina Jones says it’s overcast and cloudy and the wind is “blowing a gale”. She says it’s good for washing but she has to keep checking to make sure her wash is still on the line.
