An east to northeasterly airflow lies over most of the country from today through till Thursday.

Isolated showers may also develop about Southland / inland Otago late afternoon / evening, low risk of a heavy shower here.
Purple – Easterlies about coastal Gisborne will be fairly gusty, a similar story about coastal Canterbury / Otago with winds from the northeast.
Wednesday sees showers for much of the North Island during the day, a few of these may turn heavy late afternoon / evening then easing later in the day. It is quite hard to pinpoint any particular area this may occur however, mostly this will be on the western side of the island.
Isolated showers possible once again about inland Southland / Otago, one or two may be heavy late afternoon / evening.
Blue – A band of rain about the Waikato and western Bay Of Plenty may bring a few heavy falls which eases by evening.
– Please note, the idea behind this update is to focus on the main weather highlights, which is why not all regions are mentioned.
