It appears the far north and some eastern parts of the North Island could see the wettest weather today with winds in the bargain as well. The moisture could fall as just light showery activity from time to time however decent falls could also be in the mix about Northland and Gisborne.
WeatherWatch.co.nz has been watching this disturbance move south from the sub tropics and its seems that the northern fringe of the nation will see the first bursts today.
Tomorrow the rain and wind is likely to spread over other many parts of the North island with the winds rising further. The rain could becoming heavy in northern and eastern areas.
Elsewhere today and Monday looks mainly dry with just some cloud or foggy patches at times especially in eastern parts.Winds aren’t expected to be overly breezy over most parts of the Mainland however cloud could drift in later with an easterly possible about northeastern coasts and some patchy drizzle is a small possibility from about Timaru northwards either this morning or tonight.
Temperatures look to be fairly cool across many central and southern districts this morning and quite damp in foggy areas but as the day progresses foggy and cloudy patches should lift except some eastern coastlines could see cloud linger a little longer today compared to the weekend.

Weather is looking very good for this part of the country this weekend. Only risk for rain is on Friday with just a 30% risk
Have a great weekend – keep up to date with our forecasts before hand, just in case this tropical low in the North Island plays some role in the South Island – but at this stage we don’t expect it to, especially for the lower half of the island.
