High pressure remains dominant across NZ but is starting to slide off to the east. As it does that a milder, northerly flow moves down over the country with rain setting in to the West Coast, becoming heavier in the days ahead.
But mid next week another cold shot of air moves up the South Island bringing low level snow flurries around Southland and biting wind chill. WeatherWatch.co.nz is already receiving photos of lambs being born (early!) and so for those farmers please be away wind chill will be below zero mid this week for a time. The upcoming cold change isn’t as powerful as the polar change last week but will still make for a bleak Wednesday and/or Thursday in some places.
Sunday is a mostly settled day with frosts in some places this morning and again tonight in the north.
