The situation

Issued at 1:29 pm on the 3rd of December by Russell Voice

MOSTLY CLOUDY DAY LINED UP FOR SUNDAY – FEW SUNNY SPELLS IN THE MIX FROM MIDDAY.

Good afternoon. Today has played out as forecast, with sunny skies and light winds inland; winds have been fresh about coastal areas. Temperatures have hovered around 18-19 near the coast and 22-23 inland.

Evening & Tonight:  Expect a few showers to develop in South Canterbury; we don’t expect much and any shower will be brief. The rest of the region will bask in mostly sunny and settled conditions, just those fresh easterlies to contend with about the coastal areas.

Overnight Low: 8-10 degrees.

Tomorrow is looking less settled, with mostly cloudy skies early on, with patches of drizzle or light rain towards the foothills. Sunny spells should develop into the afternoon and winds will remain light. There is a risk of a few late afternoon &

 

EXTENDED OUTLOOK: Early next week will be dominated by an incoming ‘High Pressure’ = Settled & sunny weather. Looking ahead to the new working week, expect morning cloud and possible drizzle, before coming mostly fine on Monday with NE winds prevailing over the region. Conditions become milder on Tuesday as a gentle northerly airflow brings the mercury into the mid 20’s. This is then followed by a mostly fine and settled Wednesday at this stage.  So after a rather unsettled and cool start to summer, we’re now heading into summery like conditions.

 

TEMPERATURES:

 

Monday: 20-22 degrees. Lows: 9-11 degrees

 

Tuesday: 23-26 degrees. Lows: 8-10 degrees.

 

Wednesday: 21-23 degrees. Lows: 10-12 degrees

 

Thursday: 19-21 degrees. Lows: 9-11
