The situation

Issued at 7:22 pm on the 29th of September by Leighton Thomas


Good evening. Another dreary day was with us today with cloudy conditions once again, a few fine breaks earlier this afternoon. Highs today reached 13-15 degrees for the majority. Overnight lows tonight down around 8-10 degrees. Great news tomorrow, we expect lengthy fine breaks by afternoon for all with northeast breezes at times about the coast. A few late afternoon/ early evening heat showers possible about parts of North Canterbury in the mix. Highs tomorrow around 15-17 degrees. Lows: 6-8 degrees.


The upcoming weekend is looking a lot better with morning cloud clearing on Saturday to a mainly fine day with light winds and afternoon sea breezes, before a mostly fine Sunday with some variable high cloud, few evening showers with a weak southwest change. Monday at this stage sees the weather becoming mostly fine and relatively mild. Mild conditions next Tuesday and Wednesday with northerlies tending northwest, chance of some spill-over showers in the mix about inland areas.
