Southerlies Relaxing For Christmas


Southerlies Relaxing For Christmas

Cold southerlies arriving on Friday should relax briefly on Christmas Day, say MetService meteorologists. A sunny break is being forecast for many places. Day-time highs should reach the high teens for coastal places from Wellington southwards and around 20 degrees elsewhere, making this the warmest part of the week.

"This sunny interlude marks the passage across northern New Zealand of the first decent anticyclone across since mid-November," said MetService Weather Ambassador, Bob McDavitt. "By Boxing Day the weather will revert to showery conditions in all western and southern areas. These showers may interfere with the first one day International Cricket game against Sri Lanka at Eden Park in Auckland."

McDavitt wishes all holiday travellers a safe journey, and reminds those setting out early next week to check the latest weather forecast. Another dose of unsettled weather is likely especially from Tuesday to Friday.
