It looks as if it’s one of those days where rain or showers will fall almost everywhere either today and tonight and rumbles of thunder with a few falls of heavy rain could hit some as well.
Monday is set to kickoff a changeable week for many parts of the country and it also sees the arrival of the shortest day.
Although the daylight hours will be at a minimum later this week for the year it doesn’t necessarily mean that the cold and wet of winter arrives on that day in particular.
WeatherWatch.co.nz believes that the coldest weather can be a month or so after the shortest day but not always the wettest.
Today sees a period of rain or showers come and go over eastern and southern areas of the Mainland but western districts look a lot soggier.
Eastern parts of the North Island should see mostly dry conditions until some showery conditions move in after dark but elsewhere across the north it’s fairly wet from some point this morning or near lunchtime this but a clearance could move in later in the day or tonight.
