Another settled day across NZ with morning cloud and fog patches and then fairly sunny and warm. However a cold front is slowly approaching from the Southern Ocean and this will see a nor’wester develop ahead of it later today in the south (the front doesn’t arrive until Tuesday).
Some rain will move into Fiordland, from a band of rain that has been stalled in the Tasman Sea for around 10 days now.
Light winds for many with morning fog patches and cloudy areas. A few morning showers again in coastal areas from Northland to BOP in the east, then in the afternoon perhaps a couple of isolated heavier showers inland, in places like western BOP, Waikato and Northland – but still mainly dry. Afternoon sea breezes. Northerlies developing in Wellington. Warmer than average for most places.
Highs: 21 to 25
Another calm day with morning cloud and fog patches. Sunny spells in the afternoon and becoming quite sunny for some, but clouds on the West Coast with rain developing in Fiordland. There may be a few spits over into Southland too. Most places warmer than average.
Highs: 21 to 28
