After a week of hovering near Northland the low pressure system responsible for delivering showers or rain to northern areas today will finally move out to sea tomorrow. Rain or showers are likely across Whangarei, Auckland and Coromandel with isolated thunderstorms near Whanagrei, Great Barrier Island and northern Coromandel.
The outlook for the rest of New Zealand this week is looking positive for many, with a large high moving in. “We’ll see dry conditions for much of the country this week but those south easterlies will continue to have a significant chilling affect on places like Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington” says head weather analyst Philip Duncan.
“Most places in the South Island will have a ‘feels like’ temperature (which takes in to account the feeling of the cold wind on your skin) of around 7 or 8 degrees”.
Duncan says the places to be this week, as far as sun and warmth go, will be Greymouth, Nelson, Blenheim and eventually Hamilton, Rotorua, Tauranga and Auckland.
