The big high that is passing over New Zealand is moving quickly! Yesterday it was centred west of NZ but today it heads east, bringing slightly warmer weather to many places as light winds tilt more north easterly.
Clouds will be increasing a bit in the north of the country with a few showers about Northland – the easterly flow will increase a little too, but a mostly dry day is on the way.
Meanwhile the tropics north of NZ are getting active wth tropical storms – we’ll have more information later today on how another ex-cyclone may bring more rain to New Zealand before Easter weekend.
