Monday 24 June – A settled and sunny week ahead
We’ve got a sunny settled week ahead of us folks, thanks to a building ridge of high pressure. The high-pressure centre should drift onto the country during Thursday. Overnight temps will remain nice and chilly so snow machines will keep groomed runs in tip-top shape.

Monday 24 June
A fine day up South Island ski fields. However, cloud lower down may reach lower slopes at times. There’s cloud on Ruapehu, but that should clear to a nice sunny afternoon. Brisk and chilly S-SW winds over the country.
Tuesday 25 June
A blue bird day for everyone. A westerly breeze for the Southern Lakes, light winds elsewhere.
Wednesday 26 June
Nothing but sun and fun to get you through hump day. A westerly breeze remains over the Southern Lakes and light winds elsewhere.
Thursday 27 June
Yet another clear sunny day with light winds for everyone.
It should remain mostly fine over the country Friday and Saturday, but westerly winds will pick up over the Southern Lakes as the high shifts up to the North Island. The high then drifts out to the east on Sunday allowing high cloud and NW winds to build ahead of a front, which is likely to affect the South Island early next week.
