A final surge of heavy rain is now moving back into the Wellington and Kapiti regions with a few thunderstorms in the mix – but it is going to ease this evening in the city as the band of rain heads further north.
Overnight conditions will mostly dry out – allowing streams to slowly lower, although larger rivers may continue to rise for several more hours, due to the rain runoff from the ranges.
Friday is another unsettled day but it won’t be as wet – although showers are in the forecast along with cooler southerlies – which will pick up in the afternoon and evening.
Saturday sees strong to gale force southerlies and a few showers – all easing by evening.
Sunday might have a few early showers then it should be a fairly dry day with southerlies lighter than Saturday and easing further.
It’s cooler for the next three days, with highs of just 14 degrees.
Monday is warmer and drier with nor’westers lifting the high back up to 18 degrees.
But, that is ahead of another southerly which will bring in a few showers on Monday night and across Tuesday – and will hammer Tuesday’s high down to 13 degrees.
Next Wednesday to Saturday look dry for Wellington with temperatures returning to normal for mid May.
