Low pressure covers North Island but centred over Northland for much of today (+9 Maps)


It was a wet and windy night in the upper North Island now wind and rain is moving across the rest of the island and some of the upper South Island as the low very slowly moves in.

In fact as of 8am the centre of the low was directly over Northland, spinning in a clockwise fashion and still bringing E to NE winds into Auckland - but they will be lighter today than overnight. Still, gales are possible around Great Barrier Island. The rain clouds in the north are also more broken up around the centre with sunny spells possible later today.

Heavy rain slides down the eastern side of the North Island with drizzly patches moving into the north eastern South Island today.

The centre of the low will remain over Northland for much of the day with the low still developing - but tonight it drifts over Great Barrier Island and then slowly crosses over East Cape on Wednesday with a clearance developing for most regions.

By Thursday the low has gone.
