Canterbury looks to be especially prone to high temperatures.
Overnight areas of rain pick up for the West Coast of the South Island – with a few heavy falls possible, and the chance of a thunderstorm – but this may become an eventuality more on Wednesday itself.
A warm and cloudy day on the way, with the odd shower around for places in the morning – along with breezy northwesterles and a high in the mid 20s.
Mostly fine with northwesterlies, some cloud here and there and a high in the early to mid 20s.
Warm and sunny again as northwesterlies blow across the city, temperatures getting up towards and into the 30s.
