La NiÃ±a-ike conditions are with us already as we see more low pressure over the North Island creating low cloud, drizzle and areas of rain/showers.
Plenty of easterly winds are also in the forecast for the week ahead.
Next week also looks a bit unsettled but more so from the west giving the east a break from the damp weather.
