All adverse weather warnings and watches have been lifted as the worst of this week's wet weather clears northern regions.

MetService says the upper North Island can now expect cloudy conditions with a chance of localised showers for the next couple of days as a mass of warm sub-tropical continues to sit near the top of the country.

This would be replaced by a period of settled, fine weather which was forecast for the entire country later this week.

Communications meteorologist Lisa Murray said a ridge of high pressure was building across the country bringing settled weather to most regions.

It would remain cloudy in the north with a few lingering showers.

Those in the upper North Island could also expect warm humid conditions for another night until a southerly flow made its way up the island bringing slightly cooler temperatures with it.

Meanwhile, it was mainly fine in the South Island.
