Monday Newsfeed: Unsettled last week of May, colder air, wetter weather for many (but not all)

The unsettled South-West airflow out of the Southern Ocean area continues on this week with more surges of colder.

It will be windy at times too, mainly from the southerly quarter.

NZ’s mountains and ranges mean not all regions will get rain (or much of it) – so check your local rainfal updates, % of rain – and the general NZ rainfall map to get an idea of where the bulk of the wet weather will be this week in relation to where you live. It helps reduce nasty surprises and weather like this is well known for the odd unexpected downpour or squall.

Wednesday looks more unsettled due to low pressure developing around the North Island again, driving in some areas of rain and instability – with colder air surging further up the North Island then too.

It’s a cold start to the week in the south too. Monday’s high in Queenstown is currently forecast to be around 3 or 4 degrees with sub-zero overnight lows.
