From the Met Service:

Early on Monday a low pressure system moves eastwards away from northern New Zealand with rain about northern Hawkes Bay and Gisborne easing. While during the afternoon and evening a front in a southerly surge moves north over the South Island bringing a period of rain or showers.

During Tuesday, a ridge develops over northern and central New Zealand. However a northwest flow develops over southern New Zealand bringing a low probability of significant heavy rain to Fiordland and southern Westland late in the day.

On Wednesday, an intesifying trough moves north over the South Island, preceded by a strong northwest flow and heavy rain. For Buller, Westland, Fiordland and the headwaters of the Canterbury and Otago lakes and rivers, there is moderate confidence that rainfall amounts will reach warning criteria, while for Nelson and the Marlborough Sounds the confidence is low.

The trough moves over the North Island during Thursday, bringing a low probability of significant amounts of heavy rain about western and central areas there, mainly about the ranges.

Additionally, there is moderate confidence during Wednesday that northwest winds will gust to severe gale in Canterbury on Wednesday, and in Marlborough, Wellington and Wairarapa during Wednesday and Thursday. While in Southland and Otago the confidence of northwesterlies gusting severe gale strength is low on Wednesday, and also low during Wednesday and Thursday for central and eastern areas of the North Island north of Wellington and Wairarapa.

The weather tomorrow will be influenced by a westerly airflow. In the North Island conditions are expected to remain mostly dry however from midday the odd shower may appear in the west from Wellington through to Taranaki.

Mostly cloudy skies with some sunshine is on the cards for the rest of the North Island in the west. The Bay Of Plenty will experience longer sunny spells and in the east from Hawkes Bay through to Gisborne sunny conditions can be expected. The Wairarapa will likely see some cloud and the chance of a brief shower in the afternoon as westerlies freshen for a time.

In the South Island sunny conditions are expected out east although there may be a brief early morning shower about Canterbury any of which will clear. Northeasterly breezes will pick up a little in the afternoon from the Otago coastline right through to Marlborough.

The West Coast of the South Island and Southland will see showers finally clearing early afternoon with breezy west to southwest winds, the reprieve from the wet weather will only be short lasting on the West Coast as northwesterlies and rain builds there overnight.
