Mainly settled weather and northerly airflows bring warmer than average temperatures to New Zealand this week.
A ridge of high pressure brings slightly cooler than average overnight lows for the North Island tonight, don’t expect any frosts but temperatures down to 3 degrees are possible about the Central North Island by dawn on Tuesday. Watch for possible areas of fog overnight tonight about inland North Island areas. For the South Island expect warmer than average overnight lows in a northwesterly airflow.
Very much a warmer than average day for all of New Zealand on Tuesday, highs getting into the mid teens for most regions. The top temperature will likely be about Kaitaia on 19 degrees
