A large anticyclone controls New Zealand’s weather today and on Tuesday bringing mainly settled conditions, plenty of high cloud about though and areas of low cloud / fog morning and night. It is centred just out to the east so expect a northeasterly airflow over the country. Meanwhile a large area of low pressure brews in the Tasman Sea.
Plenty of high cloud for the North Island today, the odd shower may affect Northland at times especially in the east. Also watch for areas of fog or low cloud morning and night about inland areas. The South Island has plenty of high cloud also, once again some fog possible about inland areas and areas of low or mid level cloud about some eastern parts.
Cloud a little more frequent over the North Island on Tuesday, a light shower or two may brush Coromandel, Great Barrier Island and eastern Northland at times. Low cloud or fog possible once again morning and night for inland areas. The South Island has cloudy areas in the east, high cloud elsewhere with fog possible once again in the morning for inland areas.

when you say inland areas have risk of fog, does it mean Auckland airport should be fine? we’ll be passing through AKL Tuesday morning (8-10am) so not sure whether flights could be disrupted/cancelled again? cheers!

Inland areas is more like the Waikato and Central North Island sort of thing. So yes you should be fine, not expecting fog on Tuesday morning at Auckland airport.
