A large low centred just to the northwest of the North Island drags down an easterly quarter airflow over New Zealand on Monday bringing mainly unsettled weather. The best weather will be about Southland and Fiordland.
Rain or showers for most of the North Island on Wednesday, rain may be heavy about central areas. Rain develops about Nelson / Marlborough in the morning then spreading into Canterbury during the afternoon. Plenty of high cloud about the far south, mainly dry although coastal Otago sees some drizzle by evening then a chance of overnight rain.
