Dry in the north, humid in the south – #WeatherRisks and your Main Centre outlook on Monday

Basically Monday is another day like Saturday and Sunday – with mostly settled, dry, sunny weather over the North Island and cloudy, humid, weather over the South Island.

Main features

The entire North Island stays mostly Sunny and warm, with only light breezes here and there.
The North Island’s east coast – from Northland to Great Barrier Island, Coromandel Peninsula, the Bay of Plenty, East Cape to Gisborne will see swells and dangerous currents from ex-cyclone Victor increase.

South Island sees rain on the west coast, mostly Fiordland and Westland, becoming heavy at times later and setting in.
It’s dry and sunny around Nelson and Marlborough – while Canterbury, Otago and Southland also stay mostly dry, but there is a chance of a few spits here and there – especially further south.

A warm and humid day in parts of the country, the hottest weather will again be on the North Island’s East Coast, inland and north – and also in the Upper South Island (Marlborough, inland Nelson)

Main Centres
