Waitangi Day weather

It could be called groundhog day again today for parts of the country with cloud and a few sunny patches but a few rogue drizzly showers are also in the mix.

This long weekend has been fairly consistent with overhead conditions but not necessarily to everyones liking.

It’s been a tricky call to make in regards to how much cloud and sunshine is going to be taking place where and when but New Plymouth and Wellington have certainly seen some murk off and on over the extended weekend.

Temperatures haven’t suffered too much and today the low 20s are set to be commonplace across the North Island and perhaps creep a little higher in sunny and sheltered areas.

An example of that was yesterday in the south with Alexandra nearing the 30 degree mark and they might take another shot at that maximum today.

Coastal North Otago and Canterbury have seen an easterly all weekend and that’s set to roll on today and the wind certainly has a crisp feel.

The short working week is holding on to a similar pattern but the end of the week is likely to see some rain or showery activity start to move in.
Across the far south and east coast of the South Island a southerly is expected to brew just prior to the weekend and be felt further afield by Saturday.
