Hi there – you’re best to use our interactive maps at the top of the page, as they go out 14 days and paint a clear picture as to what is happening. It’s looking unsettled again – windy and dry in the east, very wet in the west. Big low crossing the South Island early next week. May not be stormy but unsettled.
