We have a colder surge of air heading northwards today with windier south to south west winds bringing in showers to sea level and snow to the mountains.
Generally speaking today isn’t overly wet with the highest risk of showers around the North Island’s western and eastern coastlines. Many areas are mostly dry by tonight.
Like the showers, the strongest winds also look set to be in coastal areas – but in both islands with inland areas calmer than exposed coastal areas for the most part.
Despite the cooler southerly, most places are about normal for this time of year temperature-wise, if not still a bit warmer than average.
Daytime Highs natinowide: 8 degrees in the south (northern Southland) to 19 in the north east (around Gisborne).
