Well here we have it, plenty of warm weather about. Hope everyone is happy as through November many were hanging out for settled conditions. Being very non specific the weather over New Zealand is looking largely settled for the next 7 days.
The first half of next week does provide some damp weather however. Expect some rain on the West Coast of the South Island on Monday associated with a front moving in from the Tasman Sea, the rain then moves into western areas of the North Island on Tuesday south of Auckland. A few drizzly areas are likely on the east coast of the South Island on Tuesday then the east coast of the North Island on Wednesday too.
Apart from that the weather does feel more like summer. High’s are likely to get upwards of 24 and 25 degrees about Auckland and the Waikato this weekend then after the mucky business in the first half of next week Thursday and Friday are looking very warm also. In saying that Tuesday and Wednesday are not likely to be cold, just cloudy and a bit dreary.
Saturday while sunny may deliver a cool northeasterly breeze along the South Island’s east coast, Sunday cranks up the warmth and then Monday is a hot one also. Once through Tuesday and Wednesday next week the heat begins to crank up again very much like the North Island but perhaps not till Friday.
