There will be some shower activity today but it is mainly restricted to western and southern regions, any shower activity is not likely to be very persistent.
So for the North Island we have the chance of the odd shower for western regions today, mostly clearing by afternoon but the odd straggler could remain till evening. A touch of drizzle may move into the Wairarapa this afternoon / evening as a southerly wind flow moves in.
For the South Island we have shower along the West Coast easing this morning and gradually clearing away, a few showers reach into the Nelson region at times and they clear this afternoon also. A few showers pester Southland and perhaps Otago at times any of which clear this evening.
