Morning WW. 41 mm in the guage after lst night here just south of Waipu. South westerly breeze just starting to stir. Didn’t hear anything but rain during the night. When I heard it at different time it was just steady. The air smells nice and clean after this lot.Looking ahead it doesn’t seem like there will be much of a break till about next weekend. Looking like maybe a typical spring on the way.

Gidday Steve – really appreciate the report from your area. Was some steady rain across the upper North Island overnight, in fact at 3am downpours around Whangarei (between Ruakaka and Paihia) were so heavy we had live updates here at WeatherWatch.co.nz and on Facebook/Twitter (from 2am to 5am!). Yep, next weekend is the best shot at this stage – even then it’s being challenged but the high will hopefully win out! Could be some more torrential rain on Thursday too, for some upper North Island areas – perhaps more eastern BOP focused, but will continue to update the various models.
