A STUNNING LOOK TO OUR FRIDAY – SUNNY, SETTLED AND VERY MILD ACROSS THE ENTIRE REGION.

Good morning. Our current dominating high pressure will continue to stall for some time yet, producing a fantastic looking Friday. Expect sunny skies and light winds across the region, for those inland areas in North Canterbury we may even see an isolated 26 degrees!

Our great weather looks set to continue into Sunday, before next week has a slightly more unsettled look, with a couple of fronts and systems taking aim.

A large high pressure will take center stage for the reminder of the week.

We can expect temperatures in the early twenties on Friday, Saturday, with Sunday looking very warm with some areas set to nudge 24-26 degrees. 

A weak southerly change will move north on Monday, with lower level cloud and a few showers but rainfall totals will remain low.

Our weather will remain largely settled through early stages of next week, before a system from the Tasman brings heavy rain and strong winds for the Main Divide during middle stages of the week.

We’re watching a colder southerly and widespread rain later next week; this has remained consistent and is now covered on Thursday for all 27 locations across Canterbury.
