A fine weekend but wet again next week

A fine weekend but wet again next week

The wet spell during ANZAC day, and in Auckland at first on Saturday, will clear away by the weekend as a front departs and a large anticyclone builds in across the country.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented, "After an up and down week of passing troughs and dry spells, a good sized high will bring some fine weather for most of us this weekend."

The air mass that moves in with the weekend anticyclone will certainly feel like autumn, with the risk for frost down south in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday.

The brisk westerlies of the roaring forties will keep our fine spell short lived, with another rainmaker bringing wet weather to the West Coast of the South Island by Sunday afternoon. This weather system will set the scene for a wet start for the upcoming week, with a band of rain moving across the country followed by a spell persistent rain up the east coast of the country accompanied by a brisk, cool southerly.
