A ridge lies over the North Island tomorrow, while a northerly airflow and approaching front affect the South Island.
The North Island has mainly settled weather tomorrow but settled doesn’t always mean sunny. Gisborne gets caught in a southeasterly airflow which will likely bring cloudy areas, staying mainly dry. Western Waikato down through to the Manawatu also sees cloudy areas for much of the day, perhaps even a light shower or two otherwise it’s looking mainly dry. The rest of the North Island is looking mainly sunny with afternoon highs reaching into the mid 20’s for the areas below marked in yellow.
The South Island has cloudy weather in the west, the odd light shower or drizzle patch about. Rain moves into Fiordland during the evening with a few heavy falls. Dry out east with hot afternoon temperatures; expect plenty of high cloud also. Winds mainly from the north or northeast.
Blue – Heavy form of precipitation.
Purple – Strong winds.
Yellow – Temperatures around the mid 20 degree mark or over.
