Some rain or showers for most western areas in the North Island then easing mid afternoon and gradually clearing with sunny areas developing in most places, winds will be a bit brisk from the southwest easing later. The east coast will start the day with west to northwest winds but southwesterlies will creep north in the afternoon bringing a few showers. A few showers may linger about the Hawkes Bay and Gisborne ranges till evening then clearing at night.
Later in the evening a northwesterly airflow develops over the South Island so high cloud will start to increase from then in the east and rain will develop on the West Coast overnight.
Temperatures of 16 to 17 degrees for areas north of the Waikato and in the Bay Of Plenty today, low 20’s are likely for the east coast and about Taranaki southwards to Wellington expect high’s of 14 to 15 degrees. A 16 degree high for Nelson today and about Blenheim, 13 to 14 along the east and west coasts. 11 to 12 degrees for Southland and Central Otago. Alexandra as always may pipe up to the mid teen range in the afternoon.
