Updated 6:11pm Saturday — There is a little bit of positive news for the Nelson region – some showers are coming. This Monday night a cold front is expected to sweep up the West Coast and over the South Island bringing cooler weather behind it for a time and a burst of rain.
This rain may be heavy on the West Coast but will weaken as it crosses over the Nelson Ranges, likely turning to showers later on Monday night or Tuesday morning.
But the heat isn’t going away with the “cold front” not expected to drop temperatures much in Nelson other than while the front is over top with thick cloud cover. Once the sun returns, so too does the heat.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says by Wednesday, Thursday and Friday next week highs will again be in the late 20s and early 30s with mostly cloud-free-skies.
