An anticyclone centred just west of the North Island today brings mainly settled weather to the country today, westerlies will still be a little fresh about western regions however winds will gradually ease.

Hi, i noticed Metvuw 10 day forecast and it shows the big anticyclone you guys have mentioned before.
It shows it retreating north pretty quickly with strong winds once again over the lower north and south islands as another trough moves up the country.
Is your long range models showing the same or hopefully crossing over the country? i for one are sick of these spring like conditions.

At this stage we’ll hold out train of thought but anything could change between now and when this anticyclone comes in terms of it’s positioning. Might have to wait a few days yet till there is more agreement between models
