High pressure sliding across the country tomorrow will provide a variety of weather to New Zealand. On the top of the high, and to the top of the country, an easterly flow is expected to set up. This could bring some showers to the Coromandel Peninsula, Auckland and Northland during the late morning and early afternoon.
A few showers will also be possible about the western sections of the upper South Island as the winds turn westerly.
As the high continues to head east on Thursday, it will open the door for a rather potent South Ocean front to move on to the lower South Island. Widespread showers are expected to develop during the afternoon on Thursday about coastal Southland. Showers are likely to develop along the front as it moves slowly north during the night on Thursday and into Friday.
By Saturday, the front may wash about a bit as it moves onto the North Island. However showers will still be possible from Taranaki to the Kapiti Coast and north into the High Country.
