Cloudy areas are expected to cover much of the country today however some sunshine is more likely in inland areas but still glimpses are also likely to make an appearance near some coastlines.
There’s a chance of a shower in the deep south this morning but hopefully that will move away throughout the morning with drier and sunnier spells later.
Western coasts of the country are more likely to see some thick cloud cover with a possible shower or drizzle but nothing is set in concrete as microclimates tens to create their own types of weather.
Although spectacular blue skies aren’t expected everywhere, temperatures appear to be the warmest in inland basins and sheltered areas of the upper North Island.
One advantage of the cloud cover is that night time temperatures haven’t delved too low as the cloud has kept some of the warmth in.
the wind direction also plays a key role in which areas get the most or least cloud and often it’s just a small change in wind direction that can clear the clouds away.
Despite some of the cloud cover, WeatherWatch.co.nz wants to reiterate that it’s still possible to burn over a relatively short period of time and the slip,slop,slap and wrap message still applies.
The weather situation appears to be relatively stable for much of the long weekend with long dry or sunny spells with just the odd light shower popping up in western and one or 2 northern areas.
