Not all of the country enjoyed a sunny Saturday as a front skirted up the eastern side of the country with a gusty southerly and some heavy showers however today looks much more settled overall.
In saying that, yesterday did see the odd light shower drifting across northern and western parts of the North Island and today there could be a repeat performance. A disturbance in the Tasman sea could move into Northland and Auckland later today and a shower or 2 may affect the All Blacks match tonight at Eden Park.
It’s a cool start for many this morning however temperatures should rise as the warmth of the day kicks in but breezes in coastal regions might keep a lid on the daytime highs.
In recent weeks Central Otago has been warming up and today could see the region basking in sunshine and enjoy some of the most pleasant conditions with temperatures nudging 20 degrees although frosty conditions this morning has the thermometer below the freezing mark.
The week ahead is looking quite wet for large chunks of the nation exposed to the north and west which isn’t and ideal start for the first week of the school holidays.
Rain with some solid downpours are a possibility for the upper NorthIisland as of tomorrow and persisting throughout the much of the week with an easing to showery skies by the end of the week.
