Frontal system continues up the North Island – The Big Picture on Friday

High pressure continues to cover most of New Zealand, though that frontal system that brought spells of heavy rain and flooding to Wellington still sits over the lower North Island.

For the South Island it’s fairly sunny in most places, while winds are mainly light – although northwesterly winds blow across Southland.
Fiordland is fairly cloudy, with some drizzle and showers.

The North Island is mostly cloudy in the west, from Taranaki southwards.
Taranaki sees a few areas of rain, while elsewhere it’s simply a shower now and then.
The East Coast has sunny areas and some high cloud, with the odd spot of rain possible now and then – otherwise conditions stay mainly dry.
For the upper North Island, cloudy areas and occasional sun are accompanied by light north to northeast winds, while there’s a chance of morning and evening fog in Auckland and the Waikato.
