RainWatch – A mainly dry weekend on the way, just the odd shower out west

The week so far has been a bit unsettled but conditions are calming down as we head into the weekend.

A few showers can be expected about western and southern parts of the country today as can be seen in the precipitation accumulation map below, mainly dry in the east although a spit or two may spread into Hawkes Bay from the west this afternoon.

This coming weekend a light to moderate southwesterly airflow lies over the country, this continues to bring the odd shower out west (plenty of dry spells too) and dry conditions in the east. Monday is mainly dry across most of New Zealand, just a light shower or two for Fiordland and perhaps Coromandel / Great Barrier Island.
