Northern New Zealand is becoming a very wet place to live and the next few days will only make matters worse, as more lows and fronts line up to bring a drenching says WeatherWatch.co.nz.
But there is a silver lining.
Long range models have some consensus that a high will spread in over the South Island and southern Tasman Sea next week – it should bring sunny, frosty and cold weather to southern and western parts of the South Island and clear, cold, weather to northern and western regions of the North Island..
The rain/showers will swing around to the east coast mainly in the North Island and about Wellington, bringing showers and/or rain.
The colder change could still bring snow to Mt Ruapehu, but at this stage it’s unclear as to how much snow.
Currently there are no indications of any big snow storms for any of the ski fields.
We’ll keep you posted as the wet weather shifts from west coast this week to east coast next week.

having it this wet in June….you can cope with it in August as you know winter is almost at an end but to face months of slopping round in knee deep mud everyday for another three months is just…..YUCK!

We had 16ml overnight (Kerikeri) but no wind and its blue skies here now. Guess the thunderstorms are still for later today??

WeatherWatch.co.nz doesn’t think we really have the right conditions for thunderstorms today, so you’d be better to ask MetService Glenda.
