Sunday's National Forecast - Here comes windier weather.

Posted by WW Forecast Team on Sun, 16/09/2018 - 04:00

A surge of windy northerly quarter winds will push across a number of regions today with the strongest winds likely to be Nor'Westers across the eastern South Island and central part of NZ (Cook Strait area).

The winds won't be major but in some exposed areas they may reach gale force, like through the Southern Alps.
Most places will be warmer than average today by a few to several degrees. Generally speaking, most places have a warm, dry, Sunday on the way.

NORTH ISLAND:
North to north east winds developing with a few light shower possible in northern facing regions, but generally it looks like a mainly dry day. Still a bit cloudy for some areas but much warmer than average in the south and east.
Highs: 15 to 22

SOUTH ISLAND:
Blustery nor'westers developing. Dry for most places but patchy rain develops on the West Coast today and becomes heavy tonight.
Highs: 14 to 21
