A cold southwesterly airflow lies over the country on Monday however it will finally ease overnight.
For Wellington, the Wairarapa and much of the western North Island expect cloudy areas and the odd shower at times, conditions finally ease overnight with long dry periods developing and breezy west to southwesterly winds backing off. A few snow flurries about higher parts of the Central Plateau / Desert Road during the day. Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and the Bay Of Plenty (more so in the east) expect a most sunny day.
For North Westland, Buller and the inland Nelson ranges / lakes area expect showers with snow to 500m, gradually easing during the day and clearing at night. For South Westland become mostly sunny in the morning. Nelson itself has a mainly sunny day, mostly sunny for Marlborough although some cloud may bring a shower or two in the afternoon for a time.
Canterbury has some cloud and a shower or two, there may be a brief flurry to 500m at times but it will hardly be a skiff of anything to worry about. Expect showers out on Banks Peninsula where rain sets in late afternoon / evening before easing overnight. Banks Peninsula may see some more persistent snow down to 500m especially evening. Expect rain or showers about Southland and Otago for much of the day with snow down to 400m, conditions ease in the evening and flurries may even reach 300m for a time before clearing overnight.
Nothing to get too excitited about temperature wise tomorrow, the best highs will be for Hawkes Bay, Gisborne, Auckland and Northland perhaps getting into the mid teens. High single figures or low double figures elsewhere.

I thought the weather pattern might of changed when that easterly came down no its still more less in the same pattern since the start of the year still waiting for our first 100 mil plus month this year and this is from a place that averages 1900 mils a year might I point out sept and oct were below a 100 as well only nov and dec were wetter than normal
