Another ‘bit of a messy day’ weatherwise for some parts of New Zealand. As we saw on Saturday much of the nation had a mixture of showers, sunny spells, fog patches and even set-in heavy rain. Today that shifts to eastern areas of the North Island and out to sea.
A small area of low pressure formed around Tauranga on Saturday bringing sustained heavy rain.
Today that weak low pressure system slinks eastwards away from the North Island but continues to leave an area of fairly unpredictable weather conditions which may lead to heavy downpours in some places (which are slow moving or stalled). Elsewhere conditions look fairly settled.
Isolated areas of fog, low cloud and drizzle are also possible in the upper North Island mainly earlier in the day.
Slow moving fairly isolated downpours, mostly in the eastern half of the island and possibly Wellington. Light variable winds. Sunny spells elsewhere with mainly dry weather.
Highs: 12 (south) to 19 (north)
Frosts possible in sheltered places then settled with large sunny areas. Dry but may be a few isolated showers around the upper South Island NW ranges. Light variable winds or generally calm.
Highs: 10 (south) to 16 (north)
