The sub-tropical portion of the weather is now easing in the north but windier westerlies will push through today, ramping up tonight and into Monday for many.
This means another warmer than average day for many today, especially those in the east of the North Island. In the eastern South Island it will be a couple of degrees milder – make the most of it, your temperatures tumble on Monday.
Low pressure smothers central NZ so winds will be lighter there. The subtropical side of the system is still feeding rain into some regions – today that will be the eastern South Island with rain setting into Otago and Canterbury – the last remaining truly dry parts of NZ. Rain will fall as snow in the mountains with colder air moving northwards overnight and into Monday.
