Here’s what is making the weather headlines today.
SETTLED TODAY, FROSTY THIS MORNING
The weather is settled for New Zealand today thanks to a large high, winds are light and there will be frosts this morning, especially for the inner South Island. But this will start to change tomorrow as a low with rain out in the Tasman Sea moves in.
RAIN MOVES IN TOMORROW WITH A CHANCE OF HEAVY FALLS
A low pressure system moves out of the Tasman Sea and crosses New Zealand later on Tuesday / overnight into Wednesday. The low crosses the North Island so any heavy rain potential looks to be more about the top of the South Island northwards.
Rain for Nelson and Marlborough may be heavy in the evening, more so about the Sounds and Golden Bay then clearing overnight. Rain for the western / upper North Island becomes heavy from evening in spots. Northerlies on the front side of the low strengthen later in the day for the western / upper North Island also becoming strong to gale about some coastal parts. Later in the night or around dawn on Wednesday winds will ease.

NEXT LOW TO WATCH ON FRIDAY / SATURDAY
Another low to watch will move in from the Tasman Sea around Friday or Saturday later this week, in a similar fashion to the one that moves in tomorrow. Something to keep an eye on.
