Settled Sunday, but heavy rain for some on Monday (+Rainfall maps)

Filed in:

It is a mostly sunny Easter Sunday across New Zealand with light winds under the influence of a high pressure. It is dry across the country after overnight showers.

On Monday the high pressure belt shifts eastward and southern parts of the country will be affected by a
trough coming from the west on Monday.

Moderate rainfall is expected in western Southland and West Coast on Monday, followed by a period of
heavy rainfall associated with the passage of the main cold front in the early morning on Tuesday.

Total rain accumulation from Monday to Tuesday morning can exceed 100mm in Westland and increases the
risk of flooding.
