The big high remains

The big high remains

The large high that has kept the weather mostly dry and fine for many parts of the country is in no rush to move on just yet. It is likely to remain firmly in place over the country through much of this week, blocking the eastward progression of weather systems from the Tasman Sea.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented," The big high is stuck in place over New Zealand, a bit like a big boulder blocking the flow of water in a stream. That means more of the same weather for now and no significant rainfall on the horizon."

For the the first half of the week; expect mostly dry weather, with morning cloud and perhaps a few spots of drizzle in some places. The overnight clear skies and light winds will make perfect conditions for some patchy mist and fog to the start the days also. A front will manage to push into the far southwest of the country later this week bringing some rain to Fiordland and southern Westland, with patchy falls over parts of Southland. Warmer temperatures are forecast for the far south ahead of the feature.

Later in the week as the stubborn high slides to the southeast of the country, an east to southeast flow will prevail across the North Island. This could help bring more cloud, and perhaps a few showers to northern and eastern coasts of the North Island
