Showers in parts – Monday’s #WeatherRisks and your Main Centre forecast

While there’s a southwesterly airflow sitting over the country, most New Zealanders will enjoy a fairly settled day – though from Canterbury southwards it’s looking a bit more eventful!

Isolated showers pop up in Canterbury in the afternoon – especially for inland areas – while some of these showers could become heavy, along with a chance of thunderstorms.
Showers may move more towards coastal areas in the late afternoon and evening, but by then most of the pyrotechnics should have fizzled out.


Southland and Otago will see showers during the day, while in the afternoon they could be briefly heavy at times and contain some hail.
Winds about coastal Southland and coastal Otago will be brisk from the west and southwest.

Main Centres


There are plenty of cloudy areas along a few showers through the day, though they should mostly clear by evening, temperatures in the pleasant early 20s.


Sunny areas in the capital along with the customary breezy northwest winds – while an evening southerly change brings a few showers, and temperatures in the late teens


And a similar story in Christchurch, as sunny areas with southerly winds dominate from morning, before isolated showers develop in the afternoon – especially inland.
Some of these may be heavy with thunderstorms and hail, before they move towards the coast in the late afternoon or evening, while temperatures stay just under the 20s.
