Today is a transitional day between the big high that has brought stunning weather to many parts of New Zealand (but not all) for the past five days and a new low moving in towards us from the Tasman Sea.
The high is large and will take another 24 to 48 hours to mostly clear the country – allowing a brisk nor’east flow to develop in the upper North Island.
Monday will see a mix of sun and cloud for most areas but it will be the far north and south that are most likely to see clouds thickening and showers developing by evening – and they will become more widespread on Tuesday as the high weakens in these areas first.
Temperatures for Monday look set to be mild – especially when compared to the southerly snap we had this time last week.
Overnight lows tonight will also continue the trend upwards.
Happy Monday everyone!
