The situation

Issued at 2:28 pm on the 22nd of October by Russell Voice


Good afternoon. It’s a simple set up across the region, with our High Pressure system firmly in charge. Sunny skies have dominated our day and winds have remained light for inland areas, while closer to the coast, fresh easterlies have restricted the mercury to the mid-teens.

Tomorrow is looking very similar, with sun the dominating player. Expect high cloud to increase through the day. Winds from the northerly quarter. High: 16-18 degrees  Low 6-8 degrees.




Sunday is looking mostly settled under an area of high pressure. Some cloudy periods are likely to be about through the day, accompanied by long fine spells and fresh northeast winds along the coast.  High cloud will develop during the afternoon. Labour day is looking mostly fine and sunny, a few cloudy spells and northeasterlies prevailing about the coast, lighter northerlies inland. Tuesday will remain mostly fine, expect increasing high cloud. Chance of the odd spot of rain. On Wednesday, mostly cloudy conditions are expected with the odd shower and a change to lighter southerlies. Thursday is looking mostly fine and settled before a few showers develop later on Friday.
