Dry weather to return ahead of new storm

Rough weather will today continue along much of New Zealand’s east coast, mainly from Otago to Hawkes Bay, with the heaviest rain and strongest winds between Canterbury and Wellington.

But despite the rough weather lingering – a left over from the weeks big storm and the affects of a new low east of Hawkes Bay – conditions are starting to improve.

Most of New Zealand’s west coast is in for sunnier, drier, weather starting today and spreading elsewhere during Sunday and Monday.

Wellington will likely see windy, cold, wet weather all weekend, as will southern Wairarapa.  Highs are predicted to only be in the single digits or borderline double digits.

By Monday mostly sunny, dry, weather will spread across all of New Zealand.

The weak high that will do this will strengthen on Sunday and Monday but will simply be a breather between today’s wet weather and a possible storm next week.

Computer models for a number of days have been picking a big rain and wind storm moving in from the Tasman Sea next Tuesday to Thursday. will keep a close eye on it and bring you updates throughout the weekend and next week.
