Mainly anticyclonic for New Zealand on Monday bringing settled conditions for most, a few morning drizzle patches then isolated showers about also.
Expect plenty of cloud for the North Island tomorrow, some sun now and then also especially afternoon along the east coast and in southwestern areas from Taranaki through to Wellington. There may be a light shower or two for the upper North Island, perhaps a few isolated heavy falls late afternoon / evening from southern Auckland through to Taupo. Winds are light for most tending onshore in the afternoon.
The South Island has mostly sunny conditions however about Southland and Otago skies are a bit cloudier, also some parts of the West Coast in the morning. It’s looking mainly dry, perhaps the risk of a shower about Fiordland. In the afternoon for inland areas cloud builds and isolated showers develop, especially inland Canterbury through to Central Otago where showers could become heavy before easing in the evening. Winds are light tending onshore in the afternoon.
Temperatures are looking to be in the low to mid twenties for most, highs in the mid twenties more likely for the North Island.
