It will be fairly cloudy in the west of both Islands tomorrow and a few drizzle patches or showers can be expected by most, out east expect high cloud and more warm weather.
The only substantial rain will be seen in Fiordland and later in the day Buller will get some rain but not as heavy, rain eases for these areas at night. On Tuesday many around the whole country will see cloudy skies with a few drizzle patches or light showers here and there.
Temperatures will be a bit cooler then we have had recently if your trapped under this cloudy spell of weather however it won’t be very cold at all, infact in the North Island it will likely feel quite humid so it might make the apparent temperature feel warmer then it actually is.
Wednesday sees a welcoming high pressure system come in from the Tasman Sea and with its associated southwest airflow on it’s eastern side will start to clear away the cloud.
Things are looking interesting with TC Evan, and for parts of the North Island which need rain. Some models are now agreeing with it’s intended path which is towards New Zealand then slipping south-eastwards down past the east coast of the North Island. This could bring heavy rain to the east coast and possible flooding around the 22nd or 23rd of December. Not a set in stone forecast but something to be mindful of.
