A cool start to the day over all of New Zealand with just 17 degrees the top temperature in Whakatane and Tauranga earlier this morning. Temperatures have climbed since but tomorrow a mass of chilly air is expected to move north over the mainland and across the most of the North Island on Thursday.
Behind the front there is a pool of showers but as it moves up the country, the showers may not be very significant in some northern and eastern areas.
We’re still keeping an eye on a disturbance well north of New Zealand but some models are suggesting that the moisture may not be of too much value by the time it gets closer to our shores later this weekend.
Meantime once the cool southerly moves away by the end of Thursday, cool nights and average daytime highs under mostly settled skies return at least for a day or two.
