Sunday's National Forecast

Posted by WW Forecast Team on Sun, 19/08/2018 - 04:00

After a cold start for many Sunday looks like a great day across many regions with plenty of sunshine. Clouds will build for some later in the day, especially in the west and maybe the very north.

Winds look light for many regions but northerly quarter winds will develop around the South Island and Cook Strait into the afternoon, helping lift temperatures after the colder start.

Dry almost everywhere - there may be a light isolated shower in the Far North at the end of the day.

Highs nationwide: 10 to 17 (coldest around Queenstown, warmest around Northland)

Make the most of Sunday's settled weather. A big low in The Tasman Sea moves across the country bringing an unsettled week from Monday morning to Friday morning across many parts of New Zealand.
