A MIXED LOOK TO OUR SATURDAY – AREAS OF LOW CLOUD & SUNNY SPELLS.
Good morning. A ‘sneaky’ lower level southerly is tracking north into South & Mid Canterbury this morning, bringing some lower and middle level cloud, while northern parts of the region will enjoy more sunny spells this afternoon.
Light southerlies, fresh about the coast south of Amberley this morning make the transition to the nor-east this afternoon about Coastal Canterbury and our temperatures will remain on the modest side after yesterday’s heat.
Source your town page for specific details, there will be contrast across the region – some inland parts of North Canterbury & the Mackenzie Country will push into the early twenties; our weak southerly will ‘fizzle’ & struggle to penetrate our inland basins and northern areas.
Winds then make the switch back to the nor-west overnight, with very warm temperatures during Sunday morning, before another cooler southerly brings widespread cloud and isolated shower risk during the afternoon & evening.

On Sunday we can expect more warm temperatures early on with nor-westerlies, before a weak southerly change into the afternoon brings some cloud and shower possibilities about the Canterbury Plains & Coast.
Next week is now looking mostly fine under high pressure and a calmer period on the Tasman, with less rain for the Main Divide & Canterbury Headwaters.
A cooler southwest change may bring some showers for eastern areas during later stages of Wednesday and again later next Friday.
