After days of torrential rain conditions are today at last easing and improving along New Zealand’s east coast.
Apart from a cold southerly and the odd shower here and there along the east coast, the rain clouds are drifting east.
This afternoon the Chatham Islands remain the wettest region as the low spirals by.
Meanwhile, as predicted by WeatherWatch, the sun has come out along western areas and winds have eased as a brief high moves in.
The high is continuing to spread eastwards and will clear skies along the eastern coastline.
Tonight it is predicted to be cold everywhere with frosts possible in sheltered areas south of Waikato.
Monday will be settled everywhere but in Northland and Auckland there will be signs a new low is moving in with an easterly developing and clouds increasing later.
