Rainwatch – Thursday

A sou’ east flow is being maintained over the Far North and about Gisborne with still the risk of a shower in place for the last day of summer.

Again for the rest of us and at the risk of repeating ourselves, some morning cloud initially otherwise sunny skies with gentle sea breezes about the coast with mostly light winds inland.

Looking further ahead, a front is approaching the south of the South Island tomorrow which is set to see cloud inrease along the West Coast.
As the front advances up the island some drizzly showers are possible in southern eastern districts tomorrow night or across Saturday hoever we’ve got it as a 25% possibility at the moment. 

The biggest player in the picture is a system moving across the country late next week.
Data coming in still suggests light to moderate falls across many parts, affecting many North island areas for 2-3 days and eastern parts of the South Island for a short time.

It does appear to be mainly a North Island event at this point and we’ll keep you posted on further developments each day with this RainWatch.

It will be interesting to see what develops next weekend. Models appear to be all over the place & it looks possible we won’t get much rain at all. What was looking fairly promising seems to have changed so a week is a long time & I will watch with interest to see what actually happens.

Fingers crossed for those who need it
