Weather outlook for the week ahead says that conditions this week look to be mostly dry for New Zealand despite a cold front currently moving north up the South Island.

A large high dominated our weather across the weekend and that high remains over the North Island today.

A cold front is moving up the South Island bringing heavy rain to much of the West Coast.  However as the front pushes into the high in the north it will weaken considerably and fall apart.

Despite some forecasters predicting last week a widespread showery week for Auckland still says this week looks mostly dry apart from the odd isolated shower, mainly around Tuesday and Wednesday.

It’s possible a few isolated showers may return at the weekend.

Temperatures this week look set to be mild across New Zealand despite a brief cooler change for some south of Wellington on Tuesday. 

Winds this week also look likely to be mostly calm apart from brisk conditions today around Cook Strait.
