Fog as far as the eye can see....not sure if that really makes sense, but thick fog and low cloud continues to blanket Waikato as we head into the last part of the afternoon.

With just a couple of hours until sunset, fog is still pea soup over parts of Waikato under high pressure and no wind.

Fickle is the word of the day as we track a couple of weak low pressure systems tracking into the country over Friday and Saturday. The forecast is patchy from late Friday to Sunday with areas of showers, cloud and patchy rain. It’s a bit hard to lock in exactly where the rain will be but generally western, northern and then eastern areas will get some wet weather.

We have a weak sub-tropical low and a weak Tasman Sea low merging this Saturday around the North Island but clearing away at the same time. Friday may be a wet day for some, especially later, as the systems come in. By Sunday high pressure should be forming and that will help push rain clouds away and bring the sun back out.

A weak front is currently moving up the South Island and will head into the North Island on Wednesday. It’s falling apart as it runs into high pressure and isn’t likely to deliver much rain as it tracks northwards.
