InfoGraphic: The Main Weather News Highlights across NZ: Tue, Wed, Thu

A southwesterly airflow lies over New Zealand today, a weakening front passes over the North Island while another moves onto the lower / western South Island overnight. This front moves northwards over the South Island on Wednesday then in a weakened state hits the North Island on Thursday.


Not much note worthy weather going on around New Zealand today, a few showers for western regions while it’s drier out east. Still, an isolated shower or two could spring up in the afternoon for eastern parts of the South Island Banks Peninsula southwards. A southwest change brings a few showers for the eastern North Island as the day moves along.


Blue – Some heavy rain pushes northwards along the West Coast during the day, by West Coast standards it’s not all that bad but still something to keep an eye on for anyone planning to be outdoors. Rain will ease in the evening.

Yellow – Temperatures reaching into the low 20’s for parts of northern Hawkes Bay and Gisborne, perhaps mid 20’s if your lucky.


Not alot happening, a weak front delivers showers to the west of the North Island during the day. Temperatures about Hawkes Bay and Gisborne reach into the low 20’s, also about Northland.

– Please note, the idea behind this update is to focus on the main weather highlights, which is why not all regions are mentioned.
