A very weak front is crumbling further as it tracks north over the South Island today. As of 7:30am there was a little area of rain on the West Coast around Greymouth and Westport, while on the east coast Canterbury is almost completely dry, with just a couple showers and drizzle patches about.
The front is unlikely to bring in much, if any, wet weather to the North Island today, with just a low risk of a drizzle patch in Wellington and likely won’t be enough to affect the cricket or put a dampener on WOMAD in New Plymouth.
The forecast is still mostly dry and sunny for the country this weekend despite the weak front today.
Dunedin is fog free today today with mostly sunny skies and windier conditions.
On Sunday high pressure pushes back across most of the nation bringing lighter winds and sunnier skies for most areas.
The longer, cooler, nights in March means morning fog or cloud is a little more likely these days.
The equinox is coming on Monday March 20th – equinox means equal day and night lengths, then after that it’s the slow slide to the darker, shorter, days of winter.
