We are stuck in a certain type of weather pattern at the moment and this will persist overnight and into tomorrow. That being we have a low pressure system to the northwest of the North Island drawing in an easterly airflow meanwhile a ridge of high pressure is over the South Island.
A few slow moving troughs linger over Northland and these have delivered very heavy rain falls over the region yesterday and last night. These may continue to fire up at times tomorrow for northeastern parts of Northland but the risk would appear to have eased from what it was.
For the West Coast and Southland skies will remain clear and calm, this set up brings stunning sunny days but also frosty nights. Southland and Central Otago can expect more frosty conditions overnight with areas of fog or low cloud about some inland spots. Some cloud may start to move in from the north for the West Coast tomorrow reaching Hokitika by evening.
The east coast of the South Island has a mostly cloudy start with drizzle Banks Peninsula northwards, cloud starts to break during the afternoon however with a little sun making its way through.
