The din of cicadas

The din of cicadas


The chorus of cicadas is expected to be out in full force this week as summery temperatures bring warm days and nights, across New Zealand. Although the mercury is rising, there will still be some wetter spells to watch out for.


There is a wet start in store for the West Coast with a burst of heavy rain moving in from the Tasman Sea. Severe Weather Warnings are currently in place for the south of Westland and northern Fiordland until Tuesdaymorning. Although the heaviest rain will be about the ranges, some heavier falls are still likely near the coasts. The front responsible for this rain is forecast to weaken away as it moves north and dissipates over Cook Strait.


"It was a sunny, summery weekend for many across the North Island and these conditions are likely to linger on this week" MetService meteorologist John Law said, "however, some warm moist humid air feeding in from the north will introduce some cloudier, drizzly weather to the far north and higher temperatures across the country".


This week's daytime temperatures are expected to reach into the mid to high-twenties across a large part of New Zealand and the nights are unlikely to give much relief, with temperatures only falling to the mid to high teens. "With minimum temperatures in the high teens for many of us this week, it could make for some uncomfortably, sticky nights" Law said.
