High pressure over eastern Australia and storms in the Southern Ocean means NZ is on the edges of it all, bringing us perhaps a more settled weather pattern than the past few days, but still not as settled as some may want.
NZ has a fair amount of high pressure around in the coming days, meaning large dry and sunny areas, cold mornings with frosts inland (and as far north as north Waikato / south Auckland potentially).
It also won’t be as windy. However stormy conditions in southern Australia will pass near the lower South Island on Sunday and Monday – lifting temps with nor’westers, then yet another cold front to kick off next week.
Australia has a lot of high pressure but unsettled in the south with gales and showery in the coastal east.
