A fairly dry day is underway for the country. High pressure will slide across New Zealand today, keeping things pretty dry. However, there could still be a few light showers about Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and the upper tip of the North Island.
Tomorrow are looking pretty dry as well. As the ridge of high pressure slides off to our east, a few showers could again pop up over the upper tip of the North Island during the early morning hours.
But a new frontal boundary is expected to form to our south and begin a slow trek north late tomorrow. By Thursday morning, that boundary could be the focus for showers about the western and southern South Island.
By Thursday evening, showers chances will begin to pop up on the eastern South Island.
On Friday, that boundary heads to the North Island where it will continue to spread chances for showers.
No heavy rain is expected with this system.
