It’s a bit of a mix this weekend with sunshine, frosts but also breezy conditions with some rain and showers either today and tomorrow.
Saturday though looks wettest along the West Coast and some cloudy areas across the north and east of the North island could also be getting ready to deliver some showers here and there.
Frosty conditions though this morning are greeting some parts of central New Zealand and this is where the most sunshine appears to be heading for today.
A nor’ west flow ahead of a frontal system is building over the Mainland and this is the system reponsible for bringing the wet stuff for West Coasters and possibly Southlanders later.
Temperatures overall today are a tad above normal this afternoon and for much of the weekend for many areas.
Coronet peak is set to open today depending on wind conditions and Mt Hutt is schedule to start its season next Saturday.
Today we’re two weeks away from the shortest day but just a reminder that often the coldest temperatures can be for the following four to six weeks.
