We’re just over a week away from Labour weekend and still our weather pattern continues to be ever changing and yet another weekend is topsy turvy but a few eastern areas may see the most sunshine from Gisborne down to North Otago.
The scenario isn’t too ominous as pockets of sunshine are expected to pop up but Sunday looks fairly wet over western reghons of the South Island as a frontal system approaches of the Tasman Sea.
The semi finals at Eden Park look more settled than they have been for much of the week but both Saturday and Sunday night matches could see long and dry periods but also a shower or 2 could move through, especially for the All Blacks match.
The Bay of Plenty looks like the nor’ east swell should continue to slowly slacken and the winds will come in predominantly from the west throughout the weekend.
Next week for the second week of the school holidays, a couple of fronts are expected to cross the country delivering further changeable skies with a combination of cool and warm temperatures and passing showers especiallin northern and western districts.

Thanks for your report and we thought there was more chance yesterday. Looks like rain could settle for a while and we’re not sure how much thunder might be left.

Can we expect an end to the consistent south westerlies over the south island any time soon in the coming month? Never seems break for any decent time.

Looks as if the sou’ westers are coming back and forth for a while yet with a few fronts passing through. End of next week looks a little quieter as we approach Labour weekend.
