As has been the case over much of the summer the weather today is set to provide a little of everything for quite a few areas but it appears to be drier over the North Island as a whole compared to the Mainland.
With less than a handful of days left in the month temperatures are set to be average or a little below par today for a large chunk of the country.
One or 2 showers are over pockets of the eastern and northern parts of the North Island this morning but should have mostly dried up by this afternoon.
Elsewhere across the north conditions are expected to be mainly dry with some cloudy intervals and a chance of an isolated shower.
The South Island presents a slightly murkier picture with cloud and patchy showers or light rain in southern and central districts at some point but also brighter spells with areas of sunshine are most likely across Marlborugh and Nelson.
WeatherWatch.co.nz Weather Analyst Richard Green believes that the end of the month in the south will continue to be coolish along the coasts.”It seems that the next few days will see sunny and cloudy areas but again a few showers coming and going but by the middle of the week it seems that rain will start to move up along western and southern areas of the South Island”.
