Wednesday’s national forecast – SW airflow eases (+10 maps)

A southwesterly airflow eases over the country today as a ridge of high pressure pushes in, extending out from an anticyclone in the Tasman Sea.

Most places are dry today but there is a shower or two about some eastern coastal spots, mainly the eastern North Island. There’s also a shower or two about the far south of the South Island.
