A few showers about the northern tip of Northland today with light southerlies. Morning showers clear about southern Taranaki and showers on the east coast of the North Island and Wellington ease to the odd drizzly shower in the afternoon with southeasterlies. Mostly sunny elsewhere with light winds and some cloud after a foggy start. High’s about Northland of 16 degrees, low double figure highs across the lower North Island.
A ridge lying over the South Island should bring mostly settled weather and sunny skies. Areas of cloud will still affect Southland however and along the coast north of Banks Peninsula but slowly dissipating during the day. Morning fog is possible again in Central Otago but should lift during the day. Temperatures in the high single figures for most areas however Nelson and down along the West Coast through to Hokitika should just get into the teens.
