It looks like the two islands today are offering up different weather conditions with the north winning over the south in terms of overhead conditions.
A mostly dry Friday is on the way for North Islanders as any remaining early showers are expected to disappear first thing and reveal plenty of sunshine today although still a few cloudy spells could hang about from time to time.There’s a chance that might thicken up over the sou’ west corner and a few misty showers or drizzly areas could settle in later today or tonight.
The South Island saw quite a bit of sunshine yesterday however only the north and east look likely to see much of it today as an incoming frontal system appears to see cloud and rain move across western areas and slowly spill across Otago and Southland later.
Nelson Marlborough and Canterbury appear to have the best of the weather over the south but cloud building over Canterbury is a possibility.
Temperatures are set to follow the usual pattern with highest temperatures in the north and lowest temperatures over western and southern parts of the Mainland.
