She’s been dreary in Christchurch

The weather has been cloudy one way or another for what seems like ages here in Christchurch and now we’ve had drizzly rain for the last 3 or 4 days aswell with cool temperatures around 7 or 8 degrees. No doubt many other eastern areas in the South Island have experienced the same.

There is a light coming at the end of the tunnel however as I’m seeing alot of settled weather coming up from Saturday with light winds and high pressure looking to dominate, atleast 6 days in a row of settled sunny weather is looking possible actually however there may be some cloud at times. Perhaps light southwesterlies pushing through on Sunday may deliver some cloud.

Either way after the continuous cloudiness we have been under it is coming time soon to have some sun and a long period of it at that, good thing to as I need to do a little work to my stormchasing van and I’m sure many of you are looking forward to getting out there to get jobs done about the place aswell.

Yeah a surfer mate of mine always liked an easterly swell with a SW wind to clean up the surf here in Chch, tomorrow should be ok and Sunday perhaps aswell with a SW wind, the swell looks like slowly easing a bit tho over time but should be good.
