After 6 weeks of wild weather New Zealand’s weather has gone quiet. The Weather Watch Centre’s head weather analyst Philip Duncan says the nation is in for a quiet few days. “We have one big fat high pressure system over us. That means frosts inland and low temperatures very everyone else”. Duncan says a larger than usual high will cover New Zealand for the next few days bringing relatively warm weather during the days but clear nights will mean an extra few logs on the fire and blankets on the bed. “Even government forecaster MetService has no weather warnings, thunderstorm warnings or national watches…it’s quiet out there!”.
“Daytime highs in the North Island will be in the late teens, mid teens in the South. The next 3 to 4 days will be fantastic”.
But Duncan says make the most of the next few days as next week isn’t looking so flash. “The current weather models are showing a wide area of low pressure forming in the Tasman Sea, this could bring more heavy rain to northern New Zealand…and this is inline with my current predictions for a wetter winter”.
