As predicted by WeatherWatch.co.nz the low that was yesterday heading towards New Zealand has today stalled, allowing some shower activity into Northland, but not enough to end the droughts.
Rain bands are today dancing around the east coast of Northland and Auckland but apart from the past hour or two much of Northland has seen little rain activity this weekend.
The focus for rain continues to remain mid this week, probably Wednesday or Thursday, as a low in the Tasman moves in and absorbs moisture from the north. Rain is expected to spread to a number of places.
Meanwhile the South Island is enjoying a mainly sunny, calm, day with temperatures in the low to mid teens for many.
