Sunday’s forecast – Showers move into North Island with heavy falls, thunder (+7 Maps)

Daytime heating combined with a cold front falling apart over the North Island today will lead to heavy downpours and isolated thunderstorms, especially in the eastern side of the North Island.

Hawke’s Bay and Wairarapa are most exposed to heavy downpours and possible thunder today, Gisborne region too. However some heavy downpours may also bubble up further north inland around the ranges.

A few showers – and maybe a heavy downpour – may still impact the upper South Island but conditions are drying out across the South Island today as high pressure expands.

Elsewhere the weather is fairly quiet today, and mild.

Next 7 days Rainfall
Red = Drier than average
White = Normal rainfall
Blue = Wetter than average for mid to late Feb

Please note these maps don’t tend to cover isolated downpours very well, which may impact some eastern North Island areas.
