Your urban centre outlook and #WeatherRisks on Friday

The country is still in the grips of a west to southwest airflow on Friday, with different outlooks for eastern and western parts of New Zealand.

Weather risks are all cold related – with a frosty start for some inland parts of the South Island – typical of course for this time of year.
A cold southwest change will bring snow to parts of Southland, which should continue into Saturday – as the cold stuff heads north to mix things up a little.


Light westerlies will push high cloud about over the city, and sunny patches increase in frequency through the day – the further north, the better the outlook, as temperatures hover in the mid to high teens.


A gloomy kind of a morning develops into a clear and mostly sunny day with a high in the early teens, though northerlies pick up through the early afternoon.


Light northeast winds will stick around near the Canterbury Coast, while morning cloud should clear and leave a mostly sunny kind of a day for the Garden City.
