MOSTLY CLOUDY ON WEDNESDAY – LIGHT SHOWERS & DRIZZLE RISK

Good evening. It’s been a mostly cloudy day across the Canterbury Plains & Coast, with southerly winds. It was brighter and warmer about the Mackenzie Country, with Lake Tekapo grabbing top spot, with a pleasant 26.6 degrees – the full list of the daily ‘highs’ below.

This evening areas of cloud will gradually become more widespread, with drizzle and light showers developing tonight, mostly about the foothills. Source your town page for specific conditions this evening, there will be contrast across the region.

Our rather stagnant weather continues through Wednesday and Thursday, with mostly cloudy skies and drizzle.

Later in the week remains unsettled, with spill over rain risk and another colder southerly and widespread and persistent rain risk late Sunday, into Monday next week on current analysis.
