Along the east coast conditions are cloudier with showers, cloud for Wellington gradually breaks then sunny spells push through.
A frosty start for the South Island as can be seen in the graphic below, cloud builds along the West Coast from morning with showers moving into Fiordland during the afternoon then pushing northwards during the day. Rain at times from evening.
