The weather is still in a holding pattern today but don’t expect wall to wall sunshine everywhere even though we are under the influence of relatively high pressure.
Easterlies are continuing to hang in and delivering further cloud which may thicken up over Northland and Auckland today but then brighter periods could also appear as an offchance.
Most of the nation will see cloud at some point if not for much of the day but sheltered areas where those are tucked away from the easterly are likely to have more chance of seeing some sunshine.
Temperatures are set to range from the high teens for those exposed to the coolish easterlies but up to the high 20s for a few inland inland areas and yesterday it was Alexandra and Murchison claiming the top spot and there’s a good chance that those 2 centres will be rivalling for the top temperature today.
Weather Analyst Richard Green says ” It’s not very exciting weather and at times it seems it can’t make up its mind but at least it’s not too wet but we won’t be breaking sunshine records anytime soon either as a nation”.
Yesterday sunshine was recorded in a few centres for much of the day but they were outstripped by numerous towns and cities where cloud hung on and some brrezy conditions as well.
