A large winter high

July 16, 2012

The wind and rain of recent days is just about over, according to MetService.

“A large high is expected to move onto New Zealand during Tuesday and then bring settled weather to most places for the rest of the week,” commented MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett. “Some parts of New Zealand have had a lot of rainfall over the last few days, and this will give them a chance to dry out a bit.”

The winter high will be similar to others at this time of year, in that there could be some cloud at times in the high along with some fine blue sky days. Clear skies and light winds at night may bring frost and perhaps some patchy fog in sheltered places too. There may also be the risk of the odd shower in the east from Northland down to Gisborne.

The mostly dry and settled spell should be with us for most of the week and perhaps into the weekend also.
