A ridge will start to push onto the South Island tomorrow moving in more settled weather, a southerly airflow over the northeast will bring some cloud however and any remaining drizzle patches about the coast north of Kaikoura will clear at night. Frosty in Otago with sunny skies expected to follow, there may be some cloud at times about the Southland coast. The West Coast again receives sunny weather and light winds.
The North Island’s east coast will still be affected by a persistent southeasterly airflow, rain in the Wairarapa will spread back into Hawkes Bay and Gisborne during the afternoon and evening. Southern Taranaki and the tip of Northland may get affected by showers however most other areas are looking for a sunny day and light southeasterly breezes. Perhaps some morning fog about the Waiakato again however the risk won’t be as bad as it was this morning. The southeasterly airflow eases over the North Island on the weekend as a high starts to muscles it’s way in from the Tasman Sea.
The high at this stage looks to be in control next week through till Thursday bringing mostly settled weather.
