Cloud, rain and thunder – The Big Picture on Wednesday

We have a number of different weather factors around the country through the midweek, as an easterly airflow lies over the upper North Island on Wednesday, while a southerly airflow sits over the lower North Island, and a southeasterly airflow over the whole of the South Island.

For the North Island it’s looking like a mix of sunny areas and cloud for pretty much everyone.
Cloud builds for many about the upper North Island in the afternoon, with isolated showers moving in, while showers may become heavy, and thunderstorms develop around Northland, southern Waikato, northern Taranaki and across the Central North Island.
These then ease later in the evening.

For the South Island it’s shaping up to be a mainly cloudy day in the east, with drizzle patches at times.
Areas of rain develop in Canterbury, as well as perhaps southern parts of Marlborough.
In the west, cloudy conditions prevail with the odd shower, while some rain from Hokitika northwards eases in the evening.
