Animation: Sub-tropics helping feed rain & cloud to parts of NZ

A northerly airflow that’s coming from around Fiji and New Caledonia is helping feed widespread rain that is over the North Island at the moment. 

The rain band, which is coming from a system in the Tasman Sea and out of Australia, is draped over the North Island bringing rain for 30 hours now for some areas – mostly light.

Heavier falls are in the mix though – some a little more widespread this evening.

A large high north east of New Zealand is, yet again, responsible for helping feed down this damp air.

Humidity levels in northern centres – like Hamilton, Auckland and Whangarei – are around 98, 99 and 100% at the moment. Damp!
