A large anticyclone sits in the Tasman Sea today and on Wednesday, a west to southwesterly airflow moving around this high flows over the country.
Areas of cloud for western regions today, mainly sunny in the east although there may be some morning cloud about Wairarapa and Hawkes Bay. West to northwesterly winds about coastal Southland and around Stewart Island will be gusty.
Quite cloudy for western New Zealand on Wednesday, the odd light shower possible also especially for the western South Island. Sunnier conditions for the east of the North Island however some cloud moves into the Wairarapa during the morning and perhaps further north in the afternoon as light winds tend to the south. Showers for Southland, a mix of sun and cloud for the rest of the eastern South Island.
