An easterly quarter airflow lies over the North Island on Wednesday and this brings the odd isolated shower to east / northeastern areas. Mainly dry elsewhere. Meanwhile further south conditions are mainly dry however a weakening front will deliver some rain to the West Coast.
A similar story again for the North Island on Thursday as on Wednesday, a cold front pushes northwards over the South Island during the day delivering rain in the west and a period of rain / showers about the far south.
The outlook for the next 5 days including today is shown below. The main point to note is some shower activity picks up this coming weekend for the North Island’s east coast. Also expect some rain at times for Northland this weekend, mainly in the east. It’s not drought breaking rain but anything is welcome.
