We have some regions that will be warmer than average today while tonight some will be colder than average as New Zealand deals with a fading southerly and an incoming Australian airflow and high.
As this high pressure from the Tasman Sea drifts in today, coupled with warmer air flows in the South Island and sunny skies for many in the North Island, afternoon temperatures are forecast to go above normal for this time of year, mainly by 2 to 4 degrees.
However tonight it will go the other way, especially in the North Island, as the big high locks in the colder air left over earlier this week by the southerly.
Generally speaking the next week ahead looks warmer than average for most regions, with the exception of perhaps Southland and Otago which still have a couple of colder southerlies coming in over the next 10 days.
