Fizzling North Island front to leave plenty of cloud behind (+5 Maps)

The front may be falling apart over the North Island but once the rain band dries up the clouds may still remain says

The big frontal cloud was clearly seen on satellite imagery this morning over New Zealand with huge shadows seen under it as the sun rose from the east.

As this front falls apart further on Thursday it will see drier weather and fewer showers but the cloud cover may still be thick and linger right through and into the start of the long weekend for some northern areas.


Main Weather Highlights:

  • A cold front is located over the lower North Island with patchy moderate rain.
  • The front will remain through Thursday but with weakening intensity.
  • Northwesterly winds into Taranaki and Waikato persist today and Thursday, supplying heat and moisture to form low clouds and morning fog.
  • Nor’west winds will push Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne into the late 20s on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
  • Afternoon showers triggered by local topography across inland Taranaki is possible on Thursday.
