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