More settled but still spring like for some

More settled but still spring like for some

A high builds across much of the country bringing a quieter and more settled regime for the next day or so.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented,"There will be plenty of fine weather this week as a high builds across the country, but the continuing southwest flow will keep it on the cool side for some especially the far the south of the South Island."

This high will bring mostly dry and fine weather through the middle of the week until a new front spreads onto the far south later this week to bring another brief spell of wind and rain. The south to southwest flow behind this front will usher in another spell of unseasonably cool air especially in the far south. Many northern and eastern locations will not feel the cool down as much as towns further south.

In the tropics, the first tropical cyclone of the season 'Ian' is weakening away after briefly reaching category 5 status and bringing hurricane-force winds to parts of Tonga. As the remains of the system moves southwards over the cooler waters of the southern pacific it will continue to weaken and is not expected to affect New Zealand. The tropics remain active, with the next tropical formation expected in the Coral Sea.MetService will be keeping a close eye on any potential impact to New Zealand and its area of responsibility.
