A south to south-west flow covers New Zealand for Anzac Day bringing with it a few showers, especially in the morning. While most regions have S to WSW winds the airflow over Canterbury and parts of Otago may turn more W to NW for a time, boosting daytime temperatures.
Most showers will be brief and short lived, but the eastern North Island may have more widespread showers for a time on Monday as they track northwards slowly (Hawke’s Bay, for example). Any accumulation will be low right across NZ (ie, 0.2 to 5mm).
Most of New Zealand will be mild or about average for this time of year. The only region to have below seasonal temperatures on Monday will be Hawke’s Bay, which leans 1 or 2 degrees below normal. However, further south the eastern South Island will actually be over 4 degrees above normal for Anzac Day.
