As forecast by WeatherWatch.co.nz and RuralWeather.co.nz Sunday and overnight into Monday morning saw some decent downpours in the north of the country.
For drought zones it was the first front that moved in for 2020 and brought actual widespread rain that lasted hours.
However, also as forecast, not all got it – especially those further to the east.
The map below from IBM captures the past 24 hours but may not capture every microclimate – so we’re keen to hear from you on rainfall totals you recorded this morning for Sunday or the weekend.
Good luck – we hope more rain is coming in the next 10 days for drought zones too and at this time of year the longer nights and cooler days (compared to summer) means less evaporation. Moisture may stay in the ground for two or three weeks following Sunday’s rain.
It’s worth noting after the showers over the next 48 hours, many regions may face another week of dry weather ahead.
