More thunderstorms are tonight moving in to western parts of the North Island and the upper South Island.
This follows a relative calm afternoon for many after a solid band of heavy rain and thunderstorms moved over many regions around noon today.
That band is now moving over eastern Bay of Plenty and East Cape.
Now aggressive but smaller showers are building up in the Tasman Sea and should start to make landfall in the coming hours along the west coast, including Auckland.
Lightning should be visible for many in northern and western parts of the North Island tonight and the upper South Island.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says lightning should be visible in the western and eastern skies.
We’ll update again later this evening.

Any high chance of thunderstorms for Sunday over Auckland? We seem to be missing out on all the fun! Had a couple today but nothing much. Would like the big storm we had last year to put on another show 😀

Hi there, thanks for the updates.
How are things looking for Tauranga tonight? Any more lighting and thunder on it way for us ?

Not looking very promising tonight … there’s a possibility of something tomorrow during the day though.
