Here’s what is making the weather headlines today.
SUNNY AND FROSTY
Conditions are sunny and frosty for most of New Zealand today thanks to a high pressure system covering the country. There are a few showers about though, north of Auckland thanks to a trough moving through. A few showers along the coastal fringe of the eastern North Island will clear away, then finally the West Coast may see a shower or two but overall it is mainly dry.
SETTLED THEN FRONT MOVES IN FROM THE NORTH ON SUNDAY
Saturday is another mainly settled day for New Zealand with plenty of sun, a few morning frosts about. The anticyclone bringing this settled weather starts to weaken on Sunday and a front moves into the far north from afternoon bringing rain. This front then crosses the country on Monday with rain for western regions likely and some scattered rain for the eastern North Island.
NEXT ACTIVE FRONT WEDNESDAY NEXT WEEK
A front moves over the country mid next week bringing heavy rain to western regions, drier warmer weather in the east. The weather remains unsettled till about Friday or Saturday when some high pressure moves in for a time.
