Today is a mostly dry day across the nation although a quick glance at our satellite map (on the right hand side of the page) shows rain makers to the north and another one to the west.
For Good Friday we expect a few light showers to brush the eastern side of Northland due to the disturbance in the north.
And the incoming front from the west is still another 24 to 36 hours away but a few showers or drizzle patches can be expected about the West Coast.
Over the next 24 hours we’re likely to see showers in similar places – around parts of Northland and the West Coast.
By Saturday night and into Sunday morning we’ll see the western rain band set in across the West Coast. It is likely to deliver rain from Fiordland to Farewell Spit across Saturday night and into Sunday with heavy falls in the ranges and potentially heavy falls to sea level too.
On Sunday rain should affect the drought regions of the West Coast, rain may also be falling across the upper South Island and showers should affect some western and northern parts of the North Island later on Easter Sunday.
