Sunday’s national forecast

High pressure expands over the country today but that doesn’t mean it will be hot or sunny for some areas, as wet weather shifts to eastern areas of both islands and low pressure remains hugging the eastern North Island out to sea.

The showers that yesterday affected the upper North Island as this area of low pressure crossed over Auckland are today swinging around to affect eastern areas, mostly from Gisborne southwards.

As of 12noon high pressure will be centred south east of Dunedin while weak low pressure is centred east of Gisborrne.

Showers in the east, mainly from Gisborne to Wairarapa. There may be a couple of isolated showers in other parts of the North Island, potentially around western Auckland or Northland first thing, otherwise dry. Showers may also clip Wellington. Winds are generally light, drifting from the southerly quarter but may be completely calm for many places inland. Sunniest weather inland and to the north.
Highs: 18 to 24

Cloudiest in the east with light showers moving down Marlborough and Canterbury. Cooler in the east both day and night. Warmest on the West Coast where it will be sunniest too. Southland may be a bit cloudy in coastal areas, sunnier further inland. Light winds or light easterly quarter winds.
Highs: 18 to 24
