ANOTHER ACTIVE WEEK OF WEATHER – RAIN & MILD TEMPERATURES FEATURE

Good evening. It’s been a superb end to the week under high pressure, with sunny and settled conditions for all. A surprise weak foehn affect developed this afternoon, pushing some eastern areas into the mid teens, with Akaroa grabbing top spot, with a pleasant 17.1 degrees – the full list of the daily ‘highs’ below.

The remainder of Sunday will be fine for all, with widespread frosts developing tonight, possibly severe about the basins, with elevations. Check into your town page for specific and moderated overnight temperatures.

Our large ridge of high pressure hangs on through most of Monday, with early frosts and thickening pre-frontal high cloud into the afternoon. Nor-easterlies will freshen about the coast, confining temperatures. 

We start to see changes in the Tasman from Tuesday, with heavy rain opportunities through most of next week about the Main Divide & Canterbury Headwaters and a Canterbury Weather Updates heavy rain warning is likely to be issued for the Main Divide & Canterbury Headwaters on Monday.

For the Canterbury Plains and Coast, next week is looking scrappy and unsettled, with milder weather, but multiple spill over rain opportunities, with some steadier falls possible at times mid week, especially in North Canterbury. Town pages will remain ‘fluid’ through the week, be sure to check in each evening for all the latest.

The Southern Ocean comes back to life around the 24th-25th of August, with southerly changes and some brief cooler periods of weather, with rain and snow possibilities to round out August.

•Members – keep up to date with our ‘Live Weather Feed’, town pages and warnings for all the latest information.
