A southwesterly airflow replaces the northerly quarter winds of the last few days, meaning a bit of a variation for the South Island in particular.
If there is any early rain it should clear before most Aucklanders are awake – to be replaced by sunny conditions and gentle southwesterlies and temperatures in the mid to high teens. Beauty.
The capital should stay sunny after fresh conditions overnight, with northwesterlies winds turning to the south after lunch, and temperatures firmly in the mid teens.
The Garden City starts off cloudy and cool, with showers in inland Canterbury spreading towards the coast and affecting the city in the afternoon – though these should be intermittent and passing.
