Here’s what is making the weather headlines today….
HIGH MOVES IN, WEAK FRONT IN THE EAST
Our long awaited high pressure system moves in from the Tasman Sea today, it brings mainly settled and mostly sunny weather, some coastal parts have cloud though.
There is a weak front though pushing up the eastern side of the country, just offshore more than anything, this brings some cloud and the chance of a shower to Southland this morning then headlands that stick out like Otago Peninsula, Banks Peninsula, coastal Wairarapa and Mahia Peninsula.
RAINFALL OUTLOOK – NEXT SEVEN DAYS
As you can see by the “Precipitation percentage of normal” map below it’s looking a bit dry coming up, just the West Coast has an average amount of rainfall, Fiordland a touch above average.
The reason being is we do have a few fronts moving through over the next seven days but they are coming in from the west, hence the West Coast gets the lions share. As the fronts move northwards they weaken so the western North Island doesn’t see as much. Eastern regions get a few showers but it’s just a few showers.
