Most places warming up in the days & nights ahead (+4 Maps)

Warmer than average days and nights are creeping back across the country with sub-tropical winds expected for some by the weekend.

Right now North Islanders have a southerly quarter low with the eastern side (Hawke's Bay for example), most exposed to the cooler winds. This will keep your temperatures down for a couple of days before the westerlies, then nor'westers, return again.

The South Island is warming up above average first as northerly and westerly flows start to move in.
