Settled day to start the long weekend

Tomorrow will be a slightly more settled day compared to some we’ve had of late, a ridge will move over the country extending down from an anticyclone to the north of New Zealand.

Most places can expect reasonable weather however from afternoon cloud and showers will start to move onto the West Coast of the South Island, those showers move onto the west of the North Island later overnight.

Eastern regions in both islands are likely to have a nice day as a northerly airflow develops during Saturday, northwesterlies will become a bit strong however later in the day about Cook Strait.

And for our readers who don’t get to see the facebook page, I took this photograph yesterday up the top of Kennedys Bush Road here in Christchurch around 5pm. An area of heavy showers moved through Ashburton yesterday at 3.50pm and then moved through Christchurch giving northwestern suburbs of the city a good soaking.

These two showers were trailing just behind a little and the sun came out illuminating them which I thought looked quite nice and many others have enjoyed. I labelled them the “Twin Showers”.

I like the forecast of a more NW flow for the country.
