Weather Video: High pressure on the way, drier than average too


New Zealand is finally entering into a calmer, quieter, drier phase of weather following three very large lows over the past few weeks which have brought lightning strikes, animal deaths, flooding and plenty of rain to already drenched regions.

The rain has been welcome by many too with November kicking off very dry for some regions but December kicking off mostly wet nationwide.

Over the coming weekend and next week high pressure dominates most regions but we will have a few isolated areas of showers/downpours, especially next week inland. Most main centres, however, look dry…we just need to get through the downpours coming in today, Thursday.
