Election Day Rain Tracker

Today is an important day weather-wise so we’ve decided to switch our Rain Tracker back on. 

The remainder of Saturday still looks dry over much of New Zealand with a large high anchored on either side of NZ providing solid protection from any fronts.

A small low north of New Zealand is the only real culprit and that’s producing cloudy, windy and showery conditions over the Far North and Northland.


  • Northland – between the Bay of Islands and the Far North:   A few small showers still remain but are now becoming isolated.
  • Coromandel Peninsula: A narrow band of showers is sliding up the east coast of the Coromandel.  Some of these showers may spill over into the Hibiscus Coast this evening but they are expected to be very light.
  • Still dry everywhere else!

This is the last update of the Rain Tracker today.  Check back before 5pm for the Daily Debrief.
