Today will see unsettled conditions across New Zealand as a small wintry system continues to slowly move up the country.
Several fronts are affecting New Zealand bringing rough weather to some areas. The system isn’t as widespread as first predicted however localised areas saw some significant downpours last night and early this morning, especially in Auckland, Waikato and the Kaimai/Mamaku ranges.
Colder air will today move up the country bringing mostly light snow flurries to fairly low levels. WeatherWatch.co.nz predicts snow will also brush SH2 over the Rimutaka Ranges, SH1 the Desert Road and possibly SH5 Napier to Taupo overnight tonight.
Along the North Island’s west coast heavy showers will continue to pop up with the odd, isolated, flash of lightning around Taranaki.
Some showers will be heavy enough to cause localised surface flooding.
In the South Island’s West Coast conditions should improve, while the North Island’s east coast will have a mainly dry, mild, day until that sou’west change arrives later tonight.
On Monday conditions will start to improve everywhere with sunnier, drier, weather moving in on Tuesday as a large high approaches from the west.
