A ridge over the North Island is set to slowly move off to the northeast during the day, while a northerly airflow increases over the rest of New Zealand.
A front in the Tasman Sea moves closer during the day – pushing onto the South Island’s West Coast (mostly South Westland) overnight.
It’s shaping up to be another frosty start for both islands too – though nothing extreme – and that heavy rain is moving into South Westland overnight and into Friday.
