Wednesday’s national forecast

High pressure dominates the country on Wednesday – the bubble of settled weather before windier, cloudier and some wetter weather moves into the South Island on Thursday.

Wednesday will generally be a dry, warm, day across all of New Zealand with light winds and sea breezes in most places – and a developing west to north west wind in the south of both islands later in the day.  

A few drizzle patches linger first thing around Waikato and Auckland but should burn off fairly quickly.

Here are the regional forecasts for Wednesday…
