Most regions naturally should see some morning rain then clear away during the afternoon, while the East Coast of the North Island sees rain develop a little later in the morning then clear a little later in the afternoon compared to elsewhere.
For Taranaki there may be a heavy fall and thunderstorm in the morning.
Winds blow mainly from the north, then tend west to southwest in the afternoon.
For the South Island, the day starts off a little cold with frosty conditions – nothing earth shattering, but cold nonetheless, and then it’s a mainly sunny day for most.
A few morning showers are possible for Nelson & Marlborough then clearing away.
Some high cloud develops about Southland & Otago in the evening.
A few showers about Fiordland during the day turn to rain in the evening, becoming heavy then spreading northwards along the West Coast overnight – along with possible thunderstorms.
A few spots of rain are possible overnight for Southland & Otago also, and perhaps Canterbury by dawn on Wednesday.
Northwesterly winds pick up overnight about Cook Strait too.
