Tuesday’s national forecast

As high pressure continues to move in off the Tasman, New Zealand is looking at another quiet weather day.

Not everyone will see bright sunshine, however.  But the chances for rain will be few.

One area that could see some precipitation today is the western regions of the South Island.  An onshore flow could help pop some showers today.  The best chance for seeing those will be this evening.  But really, at any point today you could see a few showers.

Another place that could see some precipitation today is Southland and Otago.  A strong southerly flow is due to set up this evening.  That could help some showers develop late today and into tonight.

On the North Island, it doesn’t look like anyone will be getting wet with the possible exception of the far south.  Say from Palmerston North, south to Wellington.  However, precipitation chances are small and anything that does develop will be light and short-lived.

Otherwise, the rest of the country can expect a dry and settled day.  Highs across the country today will range from the upper teens to lower 20’s.

The rain or showers that were expected last night didn’t happen for Southland so it’ll be interesting to see if the forecast for today brings some moisture.
