A ridge of high pressure to our west will be our weather-maker for today.
A broad southwest flow will keep things a bit on the chilly side. The flow could also produce a few areas of precipitation for the deep south. Rain showers are possible about Southland and Otago. Some snow could be mixed in with the rain this morning about inland Southland and Central Otago.
Otherwise, the rest of the country is looking at a dry and settled day. A fair amount of sunshine is expected. Highs will be mainly in the low to mid teens, although the deep south may have a rough time making the double digits this afternoon.
