Showers and breezes – #WeatherRisks and your Main Centre outlook on Friday

While most of the country can look forward to a settled kind of a day, there will be some stiff breezes and a bit of rain activity to head into the weekend.

Winds about coastal Southland are set to become fairly gusty from afternoon, perhaps strong in areas – though probably not getting up to gale strength.

The front we’ve been looking at all week moves across the Upper North Island, bringing the possibility of a few showers -becoming heavy in the afternoon or evening as this front moves through.
There’s the chance of a thunderstorm or two also – just a low risk for now, but it is there.
An isolated heavy downpour anywhere between Northland through to inland Bay Of Plenty, though the Auckland area is unlikely to see much action compared to Northland, Waikato and inland Bay Of Plenty.

Main Centres


Another mostly settled early summer day – morning cloud breaking to sunny areas in the afternoon, while a few isolated showers are possible later in the afternoon or evening, while westerly winds tend southwest during the afternoon – and a high in the early 20s.


A sunny start early on, with only light winds and temperatures in the late teens.


Another warm and sunny day, with east to northeasterly winds, becoming breezy in the afternoon near the coast, and a high in the early to mid 20s.
