These highs are stretching from south of Australia and coming from the Indian Ocean – in other words, we may be looking at more fairly settled weather for another week or so.
Showers in Bay of Plenty will drift over the Kaimai Ranges again today and tomorrow producing very heavy downpours in Waikato and potentially southern parts of Auckland. Later this week a few showers are possible around Southland and Otago.
High pressure may linger in some regions until the second week of March.
