A MOSTLY CLOUDY & COOLER THURSDAY – DRIZZLE/LIGHT RAIN RISK FOR MOST.

Good morning. A cooler southerly flow covers the region today, bringing mostly cloudy skies, with areas of light rain or drizzle, more likely about the upper Canterbury Plains & Foothills. Southerlies will be fresh about the coast until mid afternoon, before gradually tending lighter nor-easterly by evening.

Source our town pages for specific rainfall chances/totals, wind and temperatures today; please note, our ‘highs’ on town pages are from 6am to provide a more ‘honest’ reflection of today’s temperatures. Most towns and areas peaked in the early hours, before cooler southerlies.

A weak area of high pressure brings a more stable end to the week, bar a few weak wind changes and afternoon convective shower risk about the foothills.

Source your town page for specific details and keep up to date with our ‘Live Weather Feed’ for all the latest developments.
