Weather Video: Warm with high pressure but a cooler, wetter change coming


Filed in:

High pressure is dominating New Zealand’s weather at the moment bringing mostly light winds, average overnight lows and above average daytime highs.

This run of dry, warm, weather will continue for a few more days for most regions but a cold front is approaching the South Island for Thursday and Friday then this weekend it slowly heads northwards.

There will be a temperature drop behind the front with some South Island places dropping over 10 degrees in the daytime highs in the days ahead (the cool down may not reach some until Sunday or even early next week further north).

Next week there may be a wet SE wind for the North Island which is not yet locked in but would be welcome by farmers.
