It could be hail, thunder,wind or rain but whatever is going, Levin has copped them all in the last couple of days
This morning there’s been more activity, after the hail of yesterday and inside the last hour, they’ve had the heaviest rainfall around the country.
The wind is gusty from the northeast and showers have been heavy in and around Wanganui, and parts of the Manawatu.
Instability is still around the nation today with plenty of moisture and more thunderstorms are possible in the north and west of the country once more.
There should be a slight reprieve for the south today but snow levels are still low and a southerly is forecast to move up the east coast again later today, after a few showers followed a similar track overnight.
Temperatures today won’t set the record books alight up and down the country but Gisborne, Napier, Masterton and Wellington should have the sunniest skies. with temperatures relatively pleasant. Elsewhere, well, um , er… it won’t feel like the tropics let’s say!
