The spell of drier and warmer than usual weather continues for the next couple of days (at least) but a band of rain is coming from Australia to the West Coast.
WeatherWatch.co.nz forecasters say the West Coast is most exposed to rain, starting late on Friday and peaking on Saturday before easing and clearing Sunday. The chance for rain in the North Island is much lower on Sunday, but some showers, drizzle and isolated downpours are possible here and there.
Over the next couple of days the heat may increase even further. Daytime highs on Thursday through Central Otago may reach 35 degrees C in some places.
Here’s the latest for the next two days:
