High pressure is starting to move in from the west but the outer edges are windy. As high pressure moves in drier and calmer weather moves in for most places.
Windiest weather is mostly around the north east of the North Island today and the south west of the South Island later today.
However some other ares will also be a little windy like possibly around Taranaki, Auckland, Northland and the Far North – also Canterbury.
Around East Cape, Gisborne and later Fiordland there may be a few showers and drizzle patches. Dry elsewhere.
Southland, Otago and most inland parts of the South Island lean warmer than average today as do inland parts of Waikato and Northland. It’s cooler than average in the eastern North Island – by several degrees in fact. Some isolated parts of the central inland South Island will be over 8 degrees above normal.
