A wet week ahead

A shot of moisture and unstable air will bring rain chances back to New Zealand as early tomorrow.

Tomorrow afternoon, showers are expected to be moving onshore about the upper and western North Island.  Northwesterlies should help to keep temperatures up.

Gusty, warm winds are expected for the lower North Island and upper South Island.

For the rest of the South Island, while a dry day is expected for much of the Mainland, the deep south could see some precipitation ahead of a new disturbance.

As the flow of moisture continues, more rain is expected on Wednesday for the western and upper North Island.  Winds will be picking up as well.  The eastern North Island is also expected to see some rain on Wednesday.  There is a lesser chance for rain for Central New Zealand.  But southerlies are expected to bring more rain to the deep south.

On Thursday, a low starts to move in off the Tasman Sea.  This is expected to bring a new shot of precipitation to the country, especially during the afternoon and evening.  A few thunderstorms will be possible about the northern and eastern North Island.

On Friday, most of the country will start to dry out, but it will be a bit windy as New Zealand will be stuck in between a big Aussie high to our west and a deep low to our south-east  The eastern South Island could end up seeing some precipitation though.

It looks like the upcoming weekend should be dry for just about everyone as that big Aussie high becomes a Kiwi high.
