Wednesday and Thursday are both fairly settled across New Zealand with lighter winds and only a few showers.
The air around the country is fairly mild at the moment with daytime temperatures a few to several degrees above normal by day and it becomes even milder on Thursday/Friday as a northerly flow starts to develop.
Stormy westerlies continue to blast across southern Australia in a consistent manner not often seen and those windy conditions from the west will continue to send rain makers in to western NZ along with milder conditions.
