If there was ever a week to sum up Autumn weather this week would be it – that’s according to the Weather Watch Centre’s head weather analyst Philip Duncan.  “There’s perfect Autumnal weather right across the Nation thanks to a weak cold front, a large high and breezy south westerlies”.
Duncan says the sou’westers are quite strong in many exposed areas, especially Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Invercargill where they’re gusting around 60 to 70km/h.   A rash of light showers are also peppering Auckland, Waikato and Central Plateau.  “Temperatures are pretty mild in the north, with many centres recording 18 degrees.  In the South Island a southerly is keeping things a little cooler with most towns between 12 and 15 degrees”.
The weather is expected to become very settled over the next day or two.  “Stunning weather should be on the way for most New Zealanders thanks to a very intense high spreading over us.  It will anchor itself firmly above central New Zealand meaning frosts in sheltered inland places and several days ahead of sunny, warm, weather.  The ‘Fall Foliage’ will be spectacular over the coming days…a good time to dust off those cameras and take some great photos”.
Duncan says the autumn leaves will look especially colourful in the evenings with the red sunsets adding to the colour.
