Tuesday is set to be warmer in the south – and drier and sunnier in the upper north, even though showers and periods of rain will continue.
The humid easterly flow which developed after ex-cyclone Winston continues to linger around Northland all week – as the high pushes in everywhere else, creating a distinct line between thenorth and rest of the country.
Showers mixed with some rainy spells but also plenty of sunshine – and humid easterly winds pushing temperatures into the mid to late 20s again.
Sunny and clear for the most part, with southerly winds gusting strongly at times – keeping temperatures below 20 for the most part.
Winds from the south and widespread cloud cover restrict temperatures to the mid to late teens here.
