Monday sees high pressure rolling in, dry weather returns for most (+5 Maps)

It’s a case of yin and yang across New Zealand on Monday with cloud along the North Island’s eastern side while the east of the South Island is mostly sunny. Meanwhile the North Island’s western side is sunny also, as the West Coast of the South Island is cloudier.

This is the anticylonic flow moving around New Zealand as high pressure moves over the country through central areas. 

A few showers linger around East Cape, Gisborne and maybe northern Hawke’s Bay. At the opposite end of the country, in the south west of the South Island, there are also a few showers around Fiordland. It’s dry elsewhere.

The next 7 days ahead are also drier than average in most places although there will be a few showers here and there this week.
