NZ ‘in between two systems’

Looking at the current wind and satellite maps, you can see the country is currently sitting like the filling in a sandwich – in between two large, fairly typical spring weather systems.

To our northeast, that low pressure system driving much of the breezy easterlies across much of the lower half of the island is looking fairly dominant, though the direction and strength of the prevailing winds will change – and for the better – as we start heading into the middle of the week.

In the South Island, the ridge you can see at the bottom of the maps is keeping conditions fairly consistent across the island, with only Fiordland and the West Coast in for a bit of drizzle tomorrow.

The upper North Island will continue its run of ‘recovery mode’ settled weather, with some high cloud the only real feature to speak of.
