High pressure will continue to keep much of the North Island hot and dry on Sunday. That doesn’t mean the entire island will be rain-free.
Pockets of unstable air will be scattered about the island tomorrow. That may help a few showers to bubble up. The best chances for that will be from Taranaki to Wellington and Wairarapa in the morning. The a few showers will be possible about Wellington, Wairarapa and Hawke’s Bay during the afternoon.
By evening, the daytime heating may help to develop some showers for the eastern Waikato, western Bay of Plenty and Gisborne. Showers will still be possible about Hawke’s Bay as well.
None of these chances for precipitation are particularly good, but with all the little pockets of instability tomorrow, combined with a frontal boundary, combined with strong daytime heating…they can’t be ruled out.
Speaking of daytime heating…
Highs tomorrow on the NI should be about 2 to 5 degrees warmer than what was seen today from Northland through to the Waikato. So look for highs very close to 30. Temperatures should be about the same are maybe just a little warmer in the east. So highs will likely be at or slightly over 30. Some slightly cooler daytime highs are expected on the lower part of the island.
