Auckland water storage dams have more chances of rain, frosts head up to Waikato tonight and the days will start to lean warmer than average in a number of regions again.
After yesterday’s nationwide southerly change, temperatures tonight drop below zero as far north as Hamilton/Waikato, meaning we have frosty weather nationwide.

HIGH PRESSURE – COLD NIGHTS, MILD DAYS
A belt of high pressure slowly moves into New Zealand this weekend and into next week, bringing drier than average weather into many regions. It means cold nights, with below average temperatures tonight. It also brings milder days ahead. Many people find this weather quite pleasant.
RAIN NEXT WEEK:
Northern NZ has another shot of rain next week (Next Thursday to Saturday). A low in the Tasman Sea may work with a high east of NZ to encourage a wet nor’easter. It isn’t locked in – it’s ‘one to watch’ – but for Auckland’s water storage problems this is another potential silver lining.
