The new week kicks off reasonably settled, under the influence of a large, slow moving high pressure system coming in from our west – but things change a little as the week progresses.
A cold front moves up the country on Wednesday morning, bringing some wet weather and lowering temperatures in places around the North Island in particular.
Purple: Winds may gust strongly at times in Southland
Light Blue: Showers possible in the west of both islands
A pleasant and settled day for eastern regions, getting into the mid teens for the South Island’s East Coast, and mid to late teens for the North Island’s East coast.
Blue: Rain on the West Coast of the South Island
White: Frosty conditions to start in the inland north and south
A quick moving cold front passes over the country, bringing wet weather and lower temperatures in some places to start and finish the day.
Yellow: Warm and sunny in eastern regions of both islands
A ridge provides a mainly settled day, with reasonably high afternoon temperatures for eastern regions at this time of year – perhaps getting into the mid teens due to a west-northwest airflow.
– Please note, the idea behind this update is to focus on the main weather highlights, which is why not all regions are mentioned.
