It’s pretty much the same old story with plenty of sunshine expected across the nation again today with pockets of cloud here and there.
As the high continues to cover Aoteoroa the weather is remaining pretty much the same over the next few days with just the odd blip in terms of cloud but nothing of a serious nature.
Temperatures have remained cool at night but fairly pleasant in the afternoons and winds have been relatively unnoticed in quite a few areas.
The nights continue to draw in fairly quickly and it’s two months from tomorrow that we hit the shortest day.
Although the early mornings have been reasonably light since daylight saving stopped, they are also closing in reasonably rapidly.
Grass growth seems to have fallen back a little especially in areas where the overnight lows are barely above freezing.
In the last week we’ve seen temperatures nearing the freezing mark and in one or two cases just dipping below zero.
This seems likely to continue over the next little while but rain is now what’s needed as a few water tanks are starting to run dry in rural areas.
