New low could dampen upper NI Monday

Much of the country could be looking at a settled day tomorrow.

High pressure will be draped across the South Island and lower North Island tomorrow.  That will mean a mix of sun and clouds for the South Island and lower North Island.  It will also mean a dry but cloudy day for the central North Island.

For the upper North Island, it’s a very different story.

The frontal boundary coming through today, bringing the precipitation to parts of the North Island will see a low develop on its northern end.  That low will start out just west of the North Island tonight and then move across the NI late tonight and during the day tomorrow.

That will keep precipitation chances in place tomorrow for Northland, Auckland, the Coromandel Peninsula, north Waikato and western Bay of Plenty.

There could even be a few rogue showers south of that, but chances are small.

The chances for showers could linger into Tuesday.
