Another cold front moves up the West Coast then falls apart while the rest of the country stays mostly dry.
Mostly Sunny and mild with light winds although nor’west winds will pick up around Cook Stait and surrounding exposed areas (like Wellington). A few showers are also possible from Wellington to Taranaki on the Cook Strait side later in the day as the weakening front from the South Island approaches.
It will be hot in the east – and sunny – with highs pushing closer to 30 degrees.
Highs: 20 to 29
Rain, heavy at times on the West Coast, easing later in the day. Showers are possible in Southland, Otago and Nelson otherwise dry for most others. Nor’west winds for many, turning more west to south west later in the day for some.
Highs: 14 to 24 (hottest in the north east, coolest in the southern half of the island)
