The Big Picture: Wednesday’s Outlook

On Wednesday, a ridge of high pressure nudges in over the country from the west, extending out from an anticyclone in the Tasman Sea.

For the most part plenty of regions are looking at a reasonable day, with light winds from the southerly quarter.

A few morning showers clear Northland and eastern parts of the North Island, perhaps Southland at the other end of the country too.

In the afternoon a southerly airflow is set to push northwards,bringing a freshening wind.
It won’t do much, but will bring cooler temperatures and some cloud Canterbury through to the lower North Island.

Winds through Cook Strait may become fairly gusty from the south in the afternoon as the push through.
