Sunday’s national forecast

Another quiet weather day is expected for today.

A large ridge of high pressure will maintain its firm grip on our weather.  This will mean many areas will see mainly sunny skies.  The deep south of the South Island may not see quite so much in the way of sunshine however.  The coastal sections of Southland and Otago will see a healthy dose of clouds.  A few quick showers can’t be ruled out either.

The Supermoon will rise over New Zealand at 5:23pm.  At that time, most of New Zealand should have a great view.  Even areas that see a lot of clouds today should begin to clear out as we head into the early evening hours.

There was fog in Invercargill this morning but it’s clearing and the sun is out. Doesn’t look like possible showers to me.

Hi WW, We have lost that beautiful sunny weather this morning to some cloud and so far some frequent showers.
Looking at your satellite map it looks like the forerunner of that Tasman low.

We drove south to Waipu and had a glorious day there, got back to grey cloud & showers so we made a good move.
