The Big Picture: Why it’s so warm for many (2 graphics)

The wind flow across New Zealand is certainly a mild one at the moment – the snow storm of April seems like a distant memory as air once again sweeps down from the sub-tropics and boosts daytime and overnight temperatures right across the country.

A high east of New Zealand is helping pull down this warm northerly wind flow to most regions.

By the time the weekend arrives a new wind flow comes in – but it’s still mild.  Westerlies will blow in from Australia.

A colder southerly arrives mid to next week – and at this stage doesn’t look too harsh.

Farmers lucky enough to get both rain and sun will find grass growth rates may improve over the next week or so.
