On Friday we finally have some reasonable weather on the cards.
A high sits in the Tasman Sea right now, and though we still have a southwesterly airflow over the country, it’s losing it’s oomph – and certain parts of both islands will be sheltered – meaning widespread light winds and sunny skies.
The east coasts of both islands look to be mainly sunny with light winds – while the same goes for Nelson, BOP, Auckland and Northland.
Southland and the West Coast of the South Island see cloudy areas, and the chance of a shower or two – otherwise it should stay mainly dry.
Winds will come in breezy from the west or southwest (brisk westerlies for Southland).
From Taranaki through to about Palmerston North in the west, it’s looking nice – just sunny areas and some cloud, with west to northwest winds.
Frosts are possible in the morning tomorrow for many sheltered inland spots.
Some may apply again overnight, but just for the South Island this time – perhaps 1 or 2 degrees warmer overnight, meaning lows around 2 or 3 degrees, versus 1 or 2.
