ANZAC Day might be looking good here with settled conditions for much of the country but across the ditch it looks quite a different story.
It’ll be a cool start for most centres across NZ tomorrow morning but a dry start is expected however for the southern states of Australia it’s looking decidedly wintry.
Melbourne and Canberra are set for their coldest ANZAC Day in years as a southerly takes hold with a bit of a chilly grip.
Canberra is in for its nippiest ANZAC day in over 50 years based on the current forecast top of 14 degrees. This is after a brisk start of just 2 degrees for the dawn service. It won’t be as wet in Canberra as it will be in Melbourne, but brief showers are expected through the day.
The dawn service in Melbourne is going to be a cold, wet and windy one. A freshening southwesterly wind tomorrow around dawn will make it feel a degree or two colder than the ten degrees expected. Frequent and heavy showers are also going to add to the wintry feel.
Other states look drier and milder with less wind than the Victorian and ACT Capitals for the dawn services.
It’s been several years since New Zealand as a whole has had a mostly dry start for the dawn services but tomorrow does look promising.
