Rain bands just sitting out to the east of Auckland, plus fog in Wellington

The rain bands associated with ex tropical cyclone Evan are sitting just offshore to the east of Auckland. Some rain is getting into eastern Northland, Coromandel and western Bay Of Plenty. This evening or overnight some rain will finally make it’s way a little further westwards.

The above is what has been forecasting today, and as we predicted all last week, the heavy rain is looking to be fragmented and broken up. A dry day with a greater chance of showers later today looks to be more an accurate portrayal of how the weather has turned out in our largest city.

Use the weather maps at to help plan your days coming up, and read the latest weather news on the website. Also take note of warnings from government forecaster Metservice to help plan ahead if you are anywhere north of Auckland over the coming days.
