High pressure brings fine weekend
A slow-moving low-pressure system that brought heavy rain and localised flooding to parts of the upper North Island has cleared away to the north of Aotearoa, as a large ridge of high-pressure becomes established over the country. As a result, MetService is forecasting settled weather for most of the country this weekend.
MetService meteorologist David Miller says, “There are often exceptions though, with a few minor showers expected in the north of the North Island and in the west of the South Island. A front also skims past the far south and brings a period of rain there during Sunday. Predominantly though, mostly fine weather with seasonal temperatures is expected over the weekend, good news for people heading out for a bubble walk on Father’s Day.”
On Monday, northerlies develop over the country ahead of a front approaching from the west. This front is likely to bring a period of heavy rain to the west of the South Island, and Severe Weather Warnings may be issued for this next weather system.
