It’s the first Sunday of 2018 and the forecast looks pretty good for most parts of the country as the late-week storm finally clears the New Zealand area out to the south east.
Replacing the deep low is a big high which should hang around for a few days before the next (much weaker) low tracks south of the South Island on Wednesday.
Winds becoming much lighter and dying out altogether in some areas as high pressure builds. A few remaining showers with a cooler may impact some north eastern and upper North Island areas for a time with cloud.
Highs: 18 to 24
Southerlies fade out with winds becoming light in most places. May be a few isolated inland showers.
Highs: 18 to 23
