We have plenty of rain, showers and drizzle across NZ today as a cold front and associated weak low pressure system move into the North Island.
The southerly change in the south will drop temperatures and bring rain in to the north and along the eastern side (while clearing from the south west). It will move into the lower North Island later in the day.
Meanwhile the North Island has a rain band moving in with some heavy falls but dry and sunny in the north and east to start with.
Also you can get more details from our special Official Easter Weekend forecast here.
Rain moving in from the west with heavy falls around Taranaki – then heading northwards into Waikato and Auckland etc later in the day or at night. A cooler southerly arrives in the lower North Island later. Sunniest and warmest weather will be around Gisborne but sunny skies should greet plenty in the upper North Island this morning too.
Highs: 14 to 22
Rain around the upper and eastern sides of the island but clearing in the west and south. A colder southerly moves in, bringing rain and showers into Canterbury. Sunniest weather today most likely in Southland but showers possible inland.
Highs: 12 to 17
