Wednesday’s national forecast

An anticyclone in the south Tasman Sea and another to the northeast of the country spread a ridge between them over New Zealand today. Conditions for the most parts will be mainly settled although areas of cloud will persist for some. A low pressure system in the north Tasman Sea makes it’s presence felt for the upper North Island by midday.

I have to agree with SW. I’m in Auckland at the moment and it’s amazing that the showers seem to come from nowhere!
