The only moisture for any of the centres this weekend seems to be mainly focused around the Gisborne area, as a southerly just holds its grip but any showers should be few and far between.
It appears to be a mixture of sunny and cloudy spells for many of us today and tomorrow and that includes the conditions for the cricket in Dunedin.
Yesterday the gods weren’t smiling much over the University Oval, as more rain fell than was expected and kept day 2 from getting underway. Fingers crossed that the weekend should be dry for play to get underway as scheduled.
Central Otago should be one of the warmest spots over the weekend but central and northern parts of the North Island, should give them a run for their money, moreso tomorrow.
A chilly start for Queenstown this morning with the thermometer plunging to 3 degrees but the sun should shine and put the mercury up into the low 20s by the end of the day.
Over the last 24 hours, it seemed as if rain bearing fronts would make more of an impact but they have run out of puff in most cases-apart from cricketing regions that is!
