RainWatch for Friday + Saturday to Monday.

A period of calm moves over New Zealand on Friday due to a ridge of high pressure. We just have a few lingering showers about coastal Hawkes Bay / Gisborne then at the other end of the country in Fiordland. Morning showers about eastern Northland clear away.

Wet weather certainly ramps up over Saturday through to Monday. Saturday itself is fairly dry then heavy rain moves into the western South Island on Sunday then much of the North Island on Monday, rain looks to push up the eastern side of the South Island on Monday also with a cold southwest change.
