It’s been a wet couple of days for the North Island but drier weather is moving in for a while… infact much of next week actually.
Showers will clear in many northern and western areas across Tuesday – but the flip side is that eastern areas like Hawkes Bay will see more rain coming in across the day.
On Wednesday those east coast North Island showers will gradually fade out across the day – with mainly dry weather for the rest of New Zealand.
On Thursday the rain returns to Northland and northern New Zealand.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says a low in the Tasman Sea will slowly push a front into Northland and Auckland across Thursday or Thursday PM, with isolated heavy falls and maybe a rumble or two of thunder.
Friday the centre of the low moves in to the western side of the North Island bringing a mix of rain, showers and dry spells.
Some rain and drizzle may also move in to the South Island’s north and north east (Nelson, Marlbrough along with northern and coastal Canterbury).
On Saturday showers remain in eastern areas, especially the North Island. But clear in most other districts across the country.
BUT -the rain all comes to an end this Sunday and Monday.
At this stage WeatherWatch.co.nz says most if not all of next week looks dry for the majority of New Zealand under a big ridge of high pressure.
Rain or showers look set to return to New Zealand, you guessed it, around about next weekend…
