Showers moving on – Your Main Centre outlook on Thursday

Thursday finally sees an end to the wet weather which have been plaguing parts of the North Island this week – though a few lingering isolated showers hanging about.

A large, slow moving high pressure system looks to bring fine and dry weather to the centre of the country, while temperatures in the South Island are set to soar in places.
Canterbury looks likeliest to see the mercury rise a noticeable amount, while it will also be warmer in Otago and Southland when compared to the start of the week.
