Good At Last For Growing Grass

Good at Last for Growing Grass

Sunny weather is being forecast for much of the country until Friday. Day time temperatures will be in the mid teens, and that's good for grass growth.

"This week's warm sunshine is due to a large high pressure system that will linger over New Zealand for several days", explained MetService Weather Ambassador, Bob McDavitt. "It brings an end to the unusually cold and stormy weather of the past few weeks."

Warm sunshine is welcome news to farmers who have been dealing with sodden soils and sluggish growth.

The next fall of rain is forecast to reach southwestern parts of the country by Thursday and move onto the North Island this weekend.
