It’s by no means a drought breaker for most but rain has fallen in a number of dry areas, including Northland, Auckland and Waikato.
This evening the rain continues to fall in some parts of eastern Northland but only a few drizzle patches and light showers remain elsewhere.
Rainfall amounts are expected to be between a few millimetres and up to 15mm across the North Island with the main bulk of rain crossing between South Waikato and Manawatu.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says again rainfall won’t be widespread but that most places should see some sort of precipitation.
Drizzle and low cloud is affecting Wellington today, with heavier drizzle and lower cloud descending on the city this evening. It’s possible the airport may be affected, but at this stage the airport is functioning normally.
Meanwhile the South Island will continue to stay mostly dry.
A large high moving in will put an end to any winds and rain – however a weak front may still brush Southland and Dunedin, producing a few insignificant showers.

Nothing to measure dark clouds but not a drop.

Counting down the days till the water tank runs out. Only 5mm here, but better than nothing at all. Very humid.
