More heat coming – #WeatherRisks and your Main Centre outlook on Tuesday

Tuesday sees yet another northwesterly airflow in the South Island, with temperatures in the east of the Island getting into the early 30 degree mark.

Canterbury looks to be especially prone to high temperatures.

Overnight areas of rain pick up for the West Coast of the South Island – with a few heavy falls possible, and the chance of a thunderstorm – but this may become an eventuality more on Wednesday itself.
