Tuesday sees a northwesterly airflow develop and strengthen, cloudy in the west with the odd light shower, rain for the South Islandâ€™s West Coast from afternoon becoming heavy in the evening as a front moves in. High cloud increases for most out east, the odd spot of rain may move into the South Islandâ€™s east coast from afternoon.

Finally on Friday a front works its way north over the country, rain then showers for most western regions as the front moves north. Sunny with high cloud out east then a southerly change moves up the South Islands east coast from afternoon bringing a few showers.
