The weather is looking awesome for New Years‘ Eve
The forecast for the last moments of 2019 and the start of 2020 look fantastic in many parts of New Zealand, says WeatherWatch.
“But some rain is possible and a little bit of wind in the south,” says a WeatherWatch spokesperson.
Many places look mild by day and by night.
Windy conditions may develop through the South Island interior in some places as the air gets squeezed through the mountains and valleys ahead of a very weak cold front coming in after midnight in the very south.
Latest data shows clouds will thicken later in the day in the deep south but drizzle or showers may not be until after midnight.
Fiordland may have rain developing before midnight.
“At this stage all main centres look dry for New Year's Eve across New Zealand - but we'll update again on Monday with the latest.
“Also, please refer to your local ten day, hourly, forecast from WeatherWatch.co.nz to drill down further for that night.
“Please also try www.RuralWeather.co.nz,” says a WeatherWatch spokesperson. “This has more free weather data for NZ locations than any other site on the planet. It may be helpful at planning things.
“Please note it currently takes ten seconds to load the data first time, we're working to speed this up in the next couple of months.”
