Monday’s national forecast

It’s not looking quite as rainy today for New Zealand as it originally looked.

Going into this past weekend, it looked like Monday was going to be a very wet day.  It will still be a somewhat showery day, but not nearly as wet as it looked 48 hours ago.

So, here’s what to expect;

For the North Island, showers will ease as we head into this afternoon.  Some brief heavy falls could be about the Coromandel Peninsula early this morning, but those could be gone as early as mid-morning.

The showers will ease across the west and south first, with Waikato, Taranaki and Wellington standing the best chance of seeing a dry afternoon.  By late this afternoon, just a few passing showers should be left about Auckland, The Coromandel Peninsula and Bay of Plenty.

By the time we get to this evening, a few passing showers will still be possible about Gisborne and Hawkes Bay.  Otherwise, most of the island will be looking at a settled, but somewhat muggy evening.

For the South Island, a few showers will hang around Nelson, Canterbury and Marlborough this morning and then clear out this afternoon.

Then it will be the far south getting wet.

Showers are expected to push into Southland this afternoon and then move into Otago for this evening.

It will be pretty windy too in the west and north of the north island least a good week to come following today.
