Tasman high could mean a quiet week ahead

Get ready for a quiet weather week.

As March comes to an end, it looks like we will be in for some very dry and settled weather.  A large ridge of high pressure will very slowly slide over New Zealand.

This ridge will keep any chances for rain away from most of the country.  The exception will be the deep south where a few chances for showers could pop up today, tomorrow and Wednesday.  Gisborne and Hawkes Bay could also see a few showers this week, but these areas probably wouldn’t get wet until the end of the week.

For the rest of the country, expect plenty of quiet weather.  Look for lots of sunshine in most areas.  Late day clouds will likely pop up about Auckland and Wellington.  But these should be harmless clouds that do nothing more than landscape the sky.

As far as temperatures goes, daytime highs should generally by in the upper teens to lower 20’s.  Cooler temperatures are possible for the coastal sections of Southland and Otago.
