A transition – #WeatherRisks on Wednesday & your main centre outlook

Wednesday was described by Head Weather Analyst Philip Duncan as “a bit of a transition between two prevailing systems”, as a warm northwesterly flow is accompanied by some rain bringing fronts.

A low sits to the northwest of the North Island in the Tasman Sea, pushing a front over the Upper North Island during the day.
This could bring some heavy rain to parts of Northland, before heading south along the west coast – taking showers and heavy spells of rain to western areas of the island such as Taranaki in the evening and overnight.

The Lower South Island looks gusty at times, as a northwesterly airflow builds over that region, after a windy Tuesday for parts of both islands.
