Welcome to the last day of January (that went fast). High pressure is firmly parked over New Zealand today bringing light winds and mostly dry skies.
It will be sunny through a number of regions and populated places with cloudiest weather around Northern Hawke’s Bay, Gisborne and Fiordland.
Most of NZ is dry today but showers affect similar regions such as Nothern Hawke’s Bay, Gisborne and East Cape, also Fiordland. Accumulations are not high.
Winds are light with sea breezes. Perhaps a slight south east flow in coastal Northland and Gisborne to Mahia. In the South Island a light nor’easter may hug the eastern coastline.
It’s colder than average both by day and night in Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne but a warmer than average day for many South Island regions.
Tonight will be cooler than average again across the entire North Island, due to the southerly change over the past day or so finally settling.
