A narrow ridge moves away to the east today, as a complex trough approaches from the west, preceded by a strengthening northerly flow. The trough lies over most of New Zealand during Friday and Saturday, while a low deepens north of the country. The trough and low move away to the east on Sunday, and another ridge moves onto New Zealand.
