The weather across New Zealand for Wednesday will see lighter winds move in across much of the country and another mostly dry day.
The coolest and wettest areas will be the eastern North Island where low pressure offshore continues to drive in that southerly.
High pressure further north means Auckland and Coromandel Peninsula and western coastal Waikato will have lighter winds after a windier past few days.
Much of the South Island inland is warmer than average but the North Island is generally about normal (in the west) and below normal (in the east).
For much more detail please refer to your LOCAL HOURLY forecasts.
