MetService Press release - Weather

A week of ups and downs in the weather

Weather Tuesday 14 to Thursday 16th March

A ridge of high pressure moved over Aotearoa last night (Monday), clearing skies and bringing lighter winds. 

The clearer and calmer conditions persist into Wednesday with just a few showers about the coasts of Southland and Westland. 

On Thursday a low from the Tasman Sea reaches New Zealand, resulting in a bout of wet and windy weather that affects almost all the country, with significant rain likely for Westland and Fiordland. 

More of the same is expected for Friday as another front ploughs into the South Island.  

Current forecasts indicate that a ridge takes hold for next weekend bringing sunnier and more settled weather, although showers will still be likely over the north on Saturday morning.
