Rain Radar: Mainly dry across New Zealand today

It’s a dry day for most of New Zealand today with the public rain radar network showing nothing of significance.

There are a few coastal showers here and there otherwise Wednesday is dry.

You may notice what appears to be a few showers over the Southern Alps – this is basically an ‘echo’ in the data, the big rocky Southern Alps mountain ranges make radar images a bit tricky to read at times. A similar issue can occur in a line just north of New Plymouth, next to Mt Taranaki.

New Zealand’s rain radar network is fully funded by the taxpayer and 100% owned by the New Zealand Government.
