Spring is here! Welcome to an even more unsettled weather pattern with the next few days being a perfect example.
After a foggy morning for some the sun has now come out in many parts of NZ – but a few showers and cloudy areas to dot the western side of the upper North Island and may briefly affect Auckland and Northland. There have been some large cloudy spells in Christchurch and Dunedin too.
In a nut shell Saturday is a mild day, Sunday gets windier and wetter but also stays mild for most, but will cool down later. This weekend is warmer than average in a number of regions, by a few to several degrees. It’s possible eastern parts of the North Island (like Hawke’s Bay) may reach 20 degrees.
A deep low will also drive in big seas around western NZ.
By Monday the cooler change sweeps nationwide and lingers for a couple of days before high pressure rolls in from the west, taking until the end of next week to reach the eastern North Island.
