VIDEO: Your Weekend forecast and 10 day outlook

New Zealand has had a real variety of weather over the past few months but that is now changing (for the time being anyway) as a south to south west flow remains with the country for another week, possibly 10 days.

The air flow in combination with our mountains and ranges means we’ll have a mix of sunny days, and cloudy showery days – but the wind flow should generally remain from the southerly quarter, mainly sou’westers.

Friday is mostly dry and possibly a little warmer in the Deep South as westerlies develop.

By Saturday the South Island is wintry with cold southerlies and showers, with snow flurries on the ranges. A few showers make it into the North Island along with the colder air.

By Sunday it’s colder across the country, but possibly a bit sunnier too – especially for northern and western areas.

Next week Fieldays kicks off at Mystery Creek in Hamilton – and again we expect the south west wind flow to be continuing.
