Aside from a few chances for rain for the Mainland, precipitation looks pretty absent from the country’s forecast for the upcoming weekend.
On Saturday, a slow-moving frontal boundary will continue to trek slowly to the north across the South Island. We could see shower chances develop ahead of this front along the West Coast. Showers are likely to stay south of Westland in the morning. During the afternoon, they could make their way north of Greymouth. Right now, it does not appear likely they will reach Nelson.
On Sunday, a new front makes its way onshore on the lower South Island. This will bring just a small chance for showers to the southern West Coast. Most of the precipitation should stay about Fiordland.
