VIDEO: Typical spring weather with ups and downs this week

This week kicks off much warmer than average with some places over 10 to 12 degrees warmer than they should be.

By Wednesday some of these areas will be seeing a several to 10 degree temperature drop as a cooler southerly moves northwards.

Wet weather dominates the West Coast and Southland – but further north, it’s looking mainly dry for the next week ahead despite a few showers.

For the fire at Lake Ohau the next 24 hours aren’t good, but Tuesday sees some wet weather, lighter winds and a temperature drop.

Is it possible to speak of northern
Westland and southern Westland, as a blanket comment saying rain for the West Coast is like saying Blenheim has the same weather as Dunedin.

Hi Noel – we do this in our National Forecast in the mornings and our rain maps also break this down into more detail. Understand your point though!
