Quiet and dry weather will be in place across the country today.
But, even with this ridge of high pressure building in, I can’t rule out the possibility for a shower or two in some parts of the east.
South winds could get just a bit of a kick to the east this afternoon. If that happens, the resulting south-southeast flow could be just enough to pop a few showers about Gisborne. Kaikoura could also see a few showers from that change in the wind.
Anything that falls will be pretty light and pretty quick. So, outdoor plans shouldn’t take too much of a hit.
For the rest of the country, expect a mix of clouds and sunshine with some breezy southerlies.
Highs today will be from the mid teens to around 20.
