This weekend is looking sunnier, calmer and drier for the most part as air pressure evens out around the nation.
Sunny, warm, weather is expected to kick off the weekend in eastern parts of the South Island, where light frosts are even possible.
On Sunday temps drop a little across parts of the South Island and showers or rain returns to the lower West Coast.
For those desperately wanting rain in the north, there isn’t much in the forecast but a low in the Tasman Sea next week may bring a little wet weather to the north and west of New Zealand.

Frosts? You told us back in July or Aug there wouldn’t any more…..
that prediction was a complete fizzer.

I never said there would be "no frosts" I said the chances of frosts were now much lower and more unlikely – as someone who works very closely with the rural community we know not to say that no frost would be possible after August! Every single year, regardless of the current weather, there is always the risk in NZ of a frost as late as November and snow is possible as late as December sometimes. I do remember saying that frosts in Auckland & Northland past September were very unlikely – that’s one area we did rule out and that was correct.
