Temperatures are likely to be similar today as they were yesterday, although southerners might find it a smidgen cooler.
Humidity was again a talking point in northern regions with sticky conditions prevailing through the hours of darkness and today appears to be sultry once more.
Thunderstorms rattled parts of Bay of Plenty and Ruapehu last evening and there were reports yesterday of some heavy showers in Northland albeit briefly.
Today, mostly dry conditions are likely across the North Island with just the odd shower possible in isolated areas whereas mainlanders are likely to see some showers in central parts of the island, with a clearance in the deep south expected and skies remaining dry in Marlborough and North Canterbury with warm temperatures.
Winds are expected to be humid easterlies in the north and lighter breezes are expected over much of the rest of the country with just one or two exceptions.
