A FINE LOOK TO OUR FRIDAY – VERY HOT INLAND (EARLY CLOUD FOR MOST.)

Good morning. It’s a cloudy and cooler start to the day, with the remnants of yesterday’s southerly change. Areas of low cloud will quickly clear this morning across the Canterbury Plains & Foothills.

High pressure will bring settled and very warm conditions for most of Canterbury today bar a few coastal areas; including Christchurch City which may struggle to budge the low cloud and fresh nor-easterlies. Parts of the Mackenzie Country will  nudge 34-35 degrees around 3pm; possibly producing out hottest temperature of the summer. Source your town page for specific temperatures today.

A weak southwest change moves north on Saturday afternoon in South & Mid Canterbury and into North Canterbury during the evening, with shower risk, before an extended period of very warm and dry weather develops across the entire region.

•Please note we’re likely to see some very warm temperatures over the next 7 days; source your town page for specific information.

•Keep up to date with our ‘Live Weather Feed’  for all the latest details and developments.
