Today a cold front moving up the West Coast falls apart as it moves across Cook Strait and into higher pressure over the North Island.
A weaker southerly may cool things in some coastal parts of the South Island’s south east while around Bay of Plenty and Coromandel Peninsula in the North Island humid northerlies will produce cloud and some drizzle with the odd heavier shower.
A chance of light showers and even an isolated heavier downpour in the morning around Coromandel Peninsula and Bay of Plenty especially. By afternoon a few isolated heavier showers may affect BOP, Central areas of the North Island and perhaps Taranaki. If you think we sound a bit vague you’re not wrong – the showers today are quite hit and miss but the risk zone for a shower does include a large portion of the North Island.
Highs: 22 to 27
Wet weather on the West Coast falls apart and dry and sunny spells increase for most. May also be a couple of isolated showers around eastern/coastal Otago, eastern Southland and the northern ranges around Nelson and Marlborough. Dry or mainly dry elsewhere.
Highs: 15 to 28 (quite a spread! Coolest in the south, hottest in the north)
