A shorter forecast generally means more settled weather and that is the case today.
Mostly clear and sunny across the North Island today with light winds, morning frosts in inland areas. Some cloud at times during the day along western coastlines. Temperatures in the mid teens for most areas, low teens for the Central North Island and about Wellington however.
Sunny with light winds in Nelson, also on the east coast of the South Island where winds will tend northeasterly, more northwesterly inland. A little high cloud about Otago. Northwesterly breezes in Southland with a little cloud at times, perhaps a shower later in the day. Cloudy areas on the West Coast with showers at times south of about Hokitika, expect west to northwesterly winds.
Mid teen high’s for most in Nelson and along the east coast, 12 or 13 can be expected along the West Coast and in Central Otago.
