The weather will remain fairly settled for today, before turning slightly towards the end of the week – once again, spring weather systems will make sure nobody gets too comfortable.
A northwesterly airflow is building over the South Island, bringing high cloud to Southland and Otago later in the day – while Fiordland and the West Coast could be in for a spot of rain, as the wind turns to the north, and freshens.
In the North Island, a narrow ridge of pressure will bring with it sunny, calm conditions – light winds and gentle seabreezes for Auckland and Northland.
Thursday will see everything shaken up a bit however, as an incoming front from the Tasman Sea will push a low pressure system over the country – bringing rain for western areas of both islands.
