Frosts increase again Sunday and/or early this coming week as high pressure moves in and crosses NZ this coming week.

Most showers clear/ease back over Sunday and into Monday as high pressure moves closer to NZ.

The same high pressure zone (anticyclone) that affected NZ last week will cross the country this coming week – and when it does that the overnight temperatures will drop with frosts becoming heavier and more widespread once again.

The high central air pressure isn’t overly significant, although 1040 is still powerful, but the huge size of the anticyclone/high pressure zone makes it a ‘mountain of high pressure’ compared to other systems along the same west to east belt. It will weaken some as it moves into NZ.
