Another lift in temperatures is on the way tomorrow as another low moves into New Zealand from the west.
The low is going to bring a warmer nor’west flow to the country which, as we mentioned on Saturday, may see temperatures hitting 20 degrees for the first time in several weeks.
The warm nor’wester saw the national high of 19 degrees recorded yesterday in Christchurch, Timaru and Kaikoura.
Tomorrow the north west flow should affect most of New Zealand with daytime highs in the mid to late teens for almost all of the country, while overnight lows in the north and east will mainly be in double digits.
The milder weather should remain in place, especially overnight, for the next 48 hours.

Here at Puhipuhi, there has been steady rain all day and have had 70 mls since 7am with hardly any wind. Not so warm at 14c.Front has stalled on eastern Northland. Looks like the first taste of a La Nina system to me.

Hi – anything further you can tell us for tommorrow for the far north…? Kaeo is in full flood this afternoon, and tommorrow looks to be even dodgier… How much rain is expected tommorrow?

Yeah there could be some fairly heavy falls especially at night and into early Weds. Definitely worth keeping an eye on.
What sort of flood conditions are you talking about? Roads and houses underwater? or just farms?
