Here’s what is making the weather headlines today.
Thanks to high pressure we are certainly very frosty. This risk continues tomorrow morning and again on Friday morning. Saturday morning we start to get out of the frost risk zone.
LAST DAY FOR SHOWERS EASTERN NORTH ISLAND
Showers for Hawkes Bay and Gisborne finally clear away overnight. Tomorrow showers start to spring up for Northland and some western parts of the South Island, especially later in the day.
OUTLOOK MAINLY DRY APART FROM WEST COAST
The weather coming up for the next 7 days looks to be drier than normal for New Zealand as we can see in the map below, red is drier than normal, blue is wetter than normal. The darker the colour the more intense the dry or wet weather is.
Just the West Coast picks up some wetter than normal weather (although not overly so, just a tad wetter than normal), mainly due to a front moving through on Saturday and perhaps another around the end of the month.
