Some of the remnants of what was short lived Cyclone Linda last week lies just north of Cape Reinga. High pressure has now crossed over the South Island and lies out over the Chatham Islands.
As a result easterlies dominant the upper North Island while a northerly quarter flow will today build over the South Island, increasing in the south later as a very big storm well to the south west of New Zealand starts to move past.
Easterlies, mostly in the north and coastal areas. Clouds most likely in the east and north and a few showers are also possible on the eastern coastline, especially Northland.
Highs: 19 to 23
A mix of sun and clouds with northerly quarter winds building slowly, especially in the southern half.
