It will be a settled and dry day across the country with a few exceptions.
A large ridge of high pressure is parked just off to our east today. That means a stable atmosphere which in turn means a brilliant spring day for almost everyone.
The only exceptions will be about the top and bottom of the country. Northland is likely to be in clouds for much of the day. A few rogue showers are possible as well.
The Coromandel Peninsula and western Bay of Plenty could see some showers this morning. These should clear before noon.
Finally, southern Westland, inland Southland and Central Otago will also see a lot of clouds along with the chance for some light showers. The best chance for seeing precipitation in these areas will be from noon. But don’t count on getting wet. The chances are small.

Hi WW, you sure are correct about weather up here today, started off glorious but soon turned a miserable grey with that cold easterly again.
Not much of a day to be outdoors.

Appreciate the report from up there Derek! Sorry the weather couldn’t be a bit better for you though.
