Settled weather and Halloween set to go tomorrow

It hasn’t happened often lately but an anticyclone is giving us a few days of gentle breezes and considerable

It’s coming in from the Tasman sea and although some wind and a handful of showers might brush the south coast of the Mainland tomorrow the rest of the country is looking dry and settled.It might not be wall to wall sunshine but sunny areas with a few cloudy spells could be the norm.

Central Otago is experiencing very sunny and warm conditions and Alexandra is set to take the national high for not the first time this week.

As we approach November it seems that we’ll enter the last month of spring under a high but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll be all blue skies and sea breezes for the rest of the month.

“It looks like it’s a good beginning but as we get closer to the second week of the month it’s looking a
little more disturbed” say weather analyst Richard Green.“We should make the most of it as the following week we could see a depression delivering some moisture to parts of the country” he says.

Halloween weather tomorrow night is shaping up to be dry for almost the entire country. The only blemish could be in the far sou’ west corner of the South Island. Winds should be mostly light and mildish temperatures should be ideal for trick or treaters.

Guy Fawkes is also approaching and there could be a smattering of showers however at this point the latest data
is swinging back and forth a little so it’s difficult to give a solid forecast.

The weather here is in a stable pattern this week for the first time in quite some time however eastern parts of the
US are experiencing a rough ride for the first time in ages with the arrival of the megastorm.
It’s very rare that all the ingredients come together to form such a system and many Americans will be hoping it’ll
be many decades again before something like this eventuates once more.
