The next week ahead in NZ looks kinda “meh”

We’re seeing a classic mixed up spring weather pattern now with westerly driven patterns and a real mix of highs and lows coming in.

Two weeks ago we had a slow easterly pattern, last week a windier westerly.

This coming week has a bit of everything, but perhaps could be generally summed up with one human noise “meh”:

  • Monday – High pressure pushes into NZ, still a bit overcast for some regions.
  • Tuesday – High pressure leaves NZ already with windy nor’west winds returning to the South Island, heavy rain to the West Coast too.
  • Wednesday – A weak front moves up the country, nor’west winds in the North Island, sou’west change in the South Island
  • Thursday – No high, no low, a ‘flat’ sort of day with a mix of cloudy/grey skies, sun, the odd shower and plenty of dry – there will be a lack of wind/movement in many places.
  • Friday – Similar to Thursday but a new low quickly develops just west in the Tasman Sea.
  • Saturday – High pressure surrounds NZ but a low in the Tasman Sea moves in slowly increasing cloud and bringing rain or showers at some point towards the end of the day or next Sunday.
