Things will be settling down across the country today. That doesn’t necessarily mean a dry day where you are. But the risk for thunder will continue to diminish and rain chances will become harder to find.
For the South Island, expect a settled day for the most part. The upper regions could still see a few showers, but the rest of the island should be dry. Highs today will range from 5-10 across the deep south to the low to mid teens across the central and north.
Most of the North Island will see shower chances throughout the day but as the day wears on, the low responsible for the rain moves further away, and the shower chances diminish. The western and southern coastal regions, including Wellington, Auckland and Northland, will have the best chance for seeing showers today. The rest of the country will have pretty good chances for precipitation this morning with lesser chances this afternoon and this evening.
Temperatures across the North Island today will be around 10 in the south and east to the mid teens about the rest of the island.
