The northeast airflow which brought warm, humid conditions for many last night is sticking around – and will continue to influence the country, but with good news – there’s a rainmaker in town too.
Central parts of the country should see some showers, so it’s looking good for some desperately dry regions of New Zealand.
Southland, Otago and Canterbury are looking at overnight showers, though it will then dry out in Southland, Otago and South Canterbury, and northern parts of Canterbury could enjoy a bit more shower activity during the day.
The West Coast is looking wet again early on, with those showers easing off in the day – while Marlborough and Nelson will also finally see some showers.
For the North Island, Wellington, Wairarapa, Hawkes Bay and Gisborne should see thickening clouds produce some light showers, with Wellington in with a decent chance of a few downpours.
There may also be a few good showers in the west and north of the North Island – stay tuned with us here as the rain maps become clearer, and we will bring you a more detailed regional outlook Wednesday morning!
