Low pressure drifts over North Island, brings showers (+2 InfoGraphics)

An area of low pressure is currently crossing the North Island with the centre around Auckland bringing in a few extra showers and isolated heavier downpours to our largest city. This small area of wet weather is slowly crossing Auckland this morning and showers will break up this afternoon as they move into parts of Bay of Plenty as the centre of the system tracks eastwards. It’s not an overly large area of wet weather, with a few showers clipping southern Northland and northern Waikato too. 

Meanwhile further south it’s showery in Wellington and around Marlborough, also caught up spinning around this low near Auckland.

Lower pressure covers all of the North Island today and it makes the weather more unstable and less predictable – with showers bubbling up especially in northern areas closer to the main centre. The low is only weak and isn’t likely to cause many issues though.

On Sunday the wet weather shifts to eastern parts of the North Island from Gisborne to Wairarapa/Wellington and maybe even down into Marlborough and Canterbury with lighter drizzly areas.

You were right! A big difference from the drizzle some other outfit were saying Auckland was getting.
More on the way as we can see big cumulous in the North and experiencing some sunshine a blue skies for awhile.
Loving the proper rain & puddles!
