Heavy showers may produce thunderstorms across northeast NI

Sea breezes, heat and humidity are expected to combine to produce heavy afternoon showers across the North Island’s north eastern corner today, reports

While ex-cyclone Atu rapidly breaks apart to the east only light winds remain over the Bay of Plenty / East Cape region.

The crown forecaster is also predicting a chance of thunderstorms, saying there is a chance of thunderstorms across Bay of Plenty and the Gisborne ranges following “widespread” showers expected this afternoon and evening. 

“Showers and thunderstorms in this area are likely to be slow moving and could therefore produce localised heavy rain” they say.
