About 75% of the country should see a mostly dry day with some cloud and sunshine today.
That’s the good news.
Now we are also expecting a few showers to dot parts of the upper North Island from time to time but the exact location is proving to be a tricky call.They are likely to be more of a nuisance value and there is a chance of steadier falls over Northland but that’s still a 50/50 call.
A few isolated inland showers are also possible over both islands especially this afternoon and the foothills could see a majority of these.Cloud build ups could see the sun disappear for a time with the isolated showers but long sunny breaks are also expected to break through.
Temperatures are likely to be about normal if not slightly higher in the north and also central parts of the nation but a cool morning across the south this morning should heat up across Central Otago throughout the day but remain fairly cool along eastern and southern coastlines.
Windy conditions aren’t looking likely for most places but a southerly breeze could hang around in the east.
Of the main centres Auckland appears to have the biggest risk of a shower or 2 and Christchurch and Dunedin look set to have the coolest maximum temperature and look set to struggle to crack 20 degrees.
