Southerly airflow this week brings cooler temperatures

Last week we had a northeasterly airflow for much of the time, now this week the airflow flicks around to the south bringing in cooler temperatures. There doesn’t look to be much precipitation about this week although the east coast of the North Island may see some rain on Thursday. Western regions of both islands will in fact be quite sunny this week.
