A stubborn high brings settled weather - for now
For the next few days, a large high is expected to sit to the southeast of the Chatham Islands.
"The high should maintain fairly settled weather over much of New Zealand for the next two to three days," commented Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett. "And it still won't really feel much like winter, with no real cold air on the horizon."
The next significant trough is expected to cross New Zealand later on Wednesday or Thursday.
"Thursday should be wet in most places, at least for part of the day," Corbett went on to say. "This trough is expected to pass fairly slowly across the country because it's pushing up against the big high out to the east."
