Philip Duncan is back and brings some positive news as we head into the weekend and next week. While we still have some cloud and a few drizzle patches and showers to deal with, the general trend into next week is more high pressure encouraging more northerlies.
In fact the air flow looks set to exit the warm sub-tropics and enter New Zealand, pushing daytime highs into the low to mid 20s for many regions and making for milder evenings and mornings too.
The next few days see similar weather with plenty of cloudy areas, especially in the north and west of both islands. We may see a few showers over the weekend with next week becoming warmer and a bit sunnier.
One week from now we may be seeing the end of this high and perhaps a low from the Tasman Sea – although too early to lock in just yet.
