NZ: Windy Saturday, calm Sunday (+2 Maps)

A burst of windy sou’westers are about to cover New Zealand making for a windier Saturday, but on Sunday a large high moves in with winds fading fast in many areas.

Take a look at the two infographics below – they look quite different. Notice the lack of wind barbs on the Sunday map as high pressure (with a fair bit of western cloud attached to it) moves in.

There will be some breezy weather in the usual places – ie around Cook Strait and some southern coastal areas, but generally speaking Sunday is a much calmer day across New Zealand.
