The weather risks today are all rain related – while there still remains the chance of a thunderstorm in the west of the North Island.
In the southern half of the island, from Southland right up to Canterbury, isolated showers are possible from late afternoon and into the evening, especially inland.
These are looking unlikely to be thundery though, as atmospheric conditions will restrict the height of clouds above the South Island today.
These showers will be hit and miss however, and most places will remain fairly dry through the day.
As mentioned up top, those thunderstorm risks have settled down a bit over the island, and they’re not looking as likely to develop as they were yesterday.
For the upper North Island, across to the Bay of Plenty and right through to Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne, isolated showers may turn heavy at times in the late afternoon.
Any thunderstorm risk will be isolated to Northland and around the ranges of Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne.
Despite this, Northland will still be the place to be today – with warm temperatures and a mostly fine day only giving in to the wetter stuff late on in the day.
