Issued : 2:12pm Saturday 23 Feb 2019, Valid from Monday 25 February 2019 to Thursday 28 February 2019

On Monday, a ridge of high pressure moves onto the country from the Tasman Sea, bringing a period of more settled weather.

On Wednesday, a front preceded by strong or gale northwesterlies moves northeast over the South Island, followed by strong or gale southerlies. This front is expected to bring a period of rain or showers to most parts of the South Island, and there is low confidence of warning amounts of rain in Fiordland and southern Westland.

The front should move over the North Island and weaken on Thursday, and a ridge spreads onto New Zealand from the Tasman Sea.
