The weather is looking fairly good for the next week or two at least so most places coming up are going to be quite settled weather wise.
But with this anticyclone it looks like periods of east to northeast wind flows may cool down a few summer days coming up where the temperature isn’t cold but it’s not overly warm. This is mainly in consideration to most eastern parts of New Zealand.
This weather pattern will mostly come into affect after a front passes over the country this coming Thursday. So from Friday onwards out west is best for the most part and this can be a time when Southland really shines.
New Zealand lies in a southwest / northeast orientation so Southland being right at the bottom is quite sheltered from northeasterly airflows, and this will ring true from Friday onwards as the district is likely to experience warm and sunny weather then with light winds.
Still, many places will be experiencing good weather in general with this now likely settled end to January. Canterbury could well hit 30 degrees this Wednesday as a northwesterly airflow develops ahead of the front mentioned above.
