This week is one of those weeks where the weather is changing each day – but nothing is really happening.
New Zealand sits away from the main highs but north of the main lows. We’re not in a stormy area, but neither is it totally calm.
Today is another “land of the long white cloud” day for many regions. Showers and cloud are affecting many areas today.
Over the next few days a few weak fronts will move in – meaning more cloud than rain for the most part.
There are still no national southerlies in the forecast – we are very confident that August will end mild for most.
As for the next weekend coming up – expect another mild start to Saturday, with a cold front moving in from the west later, which, possibly, may produce the fourth consecutive weekend low around the upper North Island – don’t panic just yet, most models show it barely even registering as a low.
Back to today and as of 8:30am light rain was affecting the Far North and light showers affecting eastern New Zealand, especially around the North Island’s north east (BOP and Gisborne).
