Weather conditions around the country are a little mixed today with showers dotting the north, clouds in the east and a weak front brushing the north.
Some smalls bands of showers are affecting a number of coastal regions this afternoon but most affected will be those in Auckland – mainly to the north and west of the CBD as showers move from south west to north east along the eastern Tasman Sea.
A few showers are also brushing Banks Peninsula but skies are clearing across Canterbury and a few showers are moving into the Mahia Peninsula and in towards the Gisborne coast. Still, long dry periods in between.
In Southland a very weak front is starting to clear the area.
Meanwhile it’s another mild day in the north and west coast of the South Island. Temperatures are already around 14 or 15 degrees but the entire east coast of New Zealand is cooler, most centres between 9 and 12 this hour.
Over the next 24 hours a strengthening south west flow will surge up and out of the Southern Ocean and will send a series of weak fronts up the Tasman Sea and into the west coast of New Zealand.
