While parts of southeast Australia continue to see temperatures well into the 30s, New Zealand is seeing cooler than average temperatures overall in a southwest flow.
Fronts embedded in this flow are bringing a few showers here and there and cool temperatures with gusty sou’ westers at times.There have been exceptions with some inland areas escaping the coolest weather along with some parts of the West Coast.Ahead of the fronts, eastern parts of the country have enjoyed temperatures above average but once the southerly ‘flicks’ come through, the mercury dives for a 24-48 hour period.
Yesterday the eastern part of the mainland was very nippy with temperatures struggling to hit double digits.
Today it should be warmer overall than yesterday but tomorrow it’ll continue that topsy turvy trend and cool off again.

I am loving this cooler weather. I adore the winter and am always sad when it gets hot and summery. I am really enjoying the nice cool breezes and chilly nights at the moment.
Hoping for a long cold winter! *grins*

Any idea how long these SW winds will continue, it seems they will hang around for summer as well as they are settling in very nicely. Very annoying being very cool and gusty so spoiling any good sunny day we have.
Also up here in Whangarei we could well do with some steady rainfall over a day or so, the ground is very dry and lawn growth seems to have all but stopped.
Thanks and enjoy your day.

It looks as if it will be with us for a while yet.
The sou’ wsters are quite gusty but not too uncommon in Spring but it would be nice to have a wee break!
Nothing significant really in terms of rainfall but spare a thought for our friends across Victoria and South Australia as they continue to bake!
