More settled and sunny stuff – The Big Picture on Wednesday

On Wednesday we have an anticyclone sitting over New Zealand, and mainly settled and sunny weather to go along with it.

For the South Island it’s a mainly sunny day, with westerly winds blowing in the west, and east to northeast winds in the east.
Easterly quarter winds blow along the east coast of the South Island, becoming breezy or perhaps brisk in the afternoon right about coastal areas – then easing later in the day.
Some high cloud then moves into Southland and Otago from afternoon, reaching Canterbury by evening.

Over the North Island it’s a mainly sunny day too, as light winds in the morning tend more onshore in the afternoon for most.
A few clouds dominate at times from Auckland northwards, where winds tend easterly for much of the day.
