This current trouble causing low as noted in previous stories today is showing signs it will move away out to the east this evening / overnight and its affects will ease over the following days. We return to full blown anticyclonic conditions for the South Island on Wednesday and for the North Island on Thursday although due to a southeasterly airflow many western parts of the North Island will see good weather by Wednesday.
Sunday – 6pm onwards
Blue – As this low moves away to the east we see areas of rain with a chance of heavy falls easing about eastern Bay Of Plenty later this evening then later this evening and overnight some heavy rain may affect the east coast of the North Island for a time.
Just a note, there are some hints in model data that there may be a burst of heavy rain for the Nelson / Tasman area overnight, confidence is not high that this will happen however it is a possibility.
Purple – Southerly winds are a bit gusty about the lower North Island this evening and overnight, no gales likely.
Blue – While many parts of the country are still a bit wet any severe weather will be minimal however about the east of the North Island there is a chance of thunderstorms and heavy falls during the afternoon then easing away in the evening.
– Please note, the idea behind this update is to focus on the main weather highlights, which is why not all regions are mentioned.
