The South Island appears to be getting the best of the weather at the moment before the arrival of a showery southerly within the next 24-36 hours.
Temperatures yesterday were warmest in Marlborough and Canterbury hitting over the 20 degree mark and sunshine with just a few cloudy areas is likely to be on the menu today for much of those 2 provinces.
Cloud is likely to build along the West Coast with some rain later but further north across the Strait, much of the North Island will see a combination again of cloud, some rain or showers, sunny spells and also winds picking up from time to time.
It’s a messy scenario and patchy for some and not ideal for the 1st week of the school holidays.
Temperatures are again quite mild in a number of cases today but are expected to drop with the southerly amping up in the south over the next day or 2.
This weekend could see pockets of showers again but once more long sunny spells are also expected for a large chunk of the nation.
Labour weekend is still over a week away however it also appears a little changeable at this stage but we’ll update the situation over this coming weekend.
