Heavy rain in parts on Saturday

Well, it’s here after a mixed bag of a week – a deep low which will really stir things up, and may cause a couple of headaches in some parts of the North Island.

The low will firstly affect upper North Island regions to start the day, though these conditions should ease later in the day – as easterly winds change to the south and southwest.

For southern Taranaki across to the Wairarapa southwards, it is looking like mainly high cloud, and winds tending southerly in the afternoon.

For most of the South Island, a moderate southwesterly airflow will prevail, not much going on in general.

A high cloud sheet spreads down from that low to the north, and then lie over the upper South Island.

It looks like staying mostly sunny further south, however in the far south, a few showers move in within a gusty west to southwesterly windflow.
