Happy Easter from MetService

MetService meteorologists are happy to report to intending holiday makers that an anticyclone is set to cross New Zealand during the bulk of the coming weekend bringing an extended period of settled weather.

"On Thursday there are some showers likely with a passing front," commented MetService Weather Ambassador, Bob McDavitt, "but these are not expected to be very intense and generally good driving conditions are forecast throughout the country."

"This Easter anticyclone is bringing good news for travellers, with plenty of sunshine to brighten the start to the school holidays. It's a welcome change from the unsettled weather we've all had over the past few days."

McDavitt was cautious about weather for the end of Easter. "We are forecasting that a low-pressure system will deepen off New South Wales on Saturday night. Northerly winds and frontal rain associated with this feature are likely to start arriving over western parts of New Zealand late on Monday and bring some unfavorable driving conditions."

McDavitt said that some travellers may need to prepare for weather-related delays late on Easter Monday. "Check the latest weather forecast before embarking on those long journeys."
