A ridge brings some settled weather to most of New Zealand today. However, a few pesky showers are still to clear the eastern North Island during the day.
The ridge doesnâ€™t last for long as Friday sees the prompt return of a front, which pushes northwards over the country during the day. Northwesterlies preceding this front bring warm conditions in the east.
A west to southwesterly airflow on Saturday brings patchy showers to the west of the South Island. Meanwhile, itâ€™s mainly dry in the east, although, a southerly flick moves through Southland, Otago, and then Canterbury during the afternoon and evening bringing a few showers. The North Island is looking mainly dry. However, it gets some rain on Sunday.
