Looking ahead

Things will be turning decidedly unsettled as we go through the rest of the week and into the weekend.

A Tasmanian low will push toward New Zealand tomorrow.  By late tomorrow, rain chances will spread onto the upper regions of the South Island.  A few showers will be possible across the rest of the country.  Winds will also be picking up with some brisk northerlies.

The low will influence our weather until Saturday evening.  So, between Thursday evening and Saturday evening, we will see periods of blustery and showery conditions across much of the country.

On Sunday, another disturbance will bring another round of wind and wet to the South Island.  The North Island should be dry during the day, but clouds and rain chances will increase after sunset.

The new disturbance will keep wind and rain chances going through Monday.  Clearing conditions are expected on Tuesday.
