An anticyclone moves over New Zealand today and hangs around this weekend and early next week, this brings mainly dry and settled weather.
Temperatures warm up inner South Island Friday
Yesterday was cooler for the South Island but this afternoon temperatures about inland areas will already be climbing up into the high twenties (Central Otago, Mackenzie Country), Saturday sees many South Island regions bounce back into the mid to late twenties perhaps even early thirties inland. Meanwhile the North Island has afternoon temperatures mostly in the mid to late twenties apart from a few coastal spots with onshore winds.
Rain moving in early February
After some settled weather hopefully there will be some rain develop about northern and western regions early February thanks to a low descending into the Tasman Sea from the tropics. More info by clicking here.
