After a lovely Saturday for most of New Zealand, Easter Sunday is looking quite promising as well.
With one big exception.
The sub-tropical low that brought the showers to the Coromandel Peninsula today will strengthen as it heads south overnight.
That means it has the potential to develop some heavy rain with it. If that happens, Gisborne will likely see the brunt of it.
Government forecaster MetService feels that rainfall amounts aren’t likely to reach their warning criteria. However, MetService also says that given the already sodden conditions, there are concerns about rain-related problems like slips. So, this will be monitored closely and we will keep you up to date on the latest information.
Elsewhere, a few morning showers are possible tomorrow for the upper sections of the North Island, but anything that falls will be light and should clear out before noon.
For the rest of the country, it should be another lovely day. Look for a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper teens to lower 20’s.
