Skies are brewing today in the north and west of the country as humid easterlies pick up the pace after a muggy night.
Temperatures struggled to drop below 20 degrees in many centres including Auckland but with the humidity, it certainly felt considerably warmer.
Threatening skies have greeted many folk this morning from Northland to Taranaki and there’s potential for some showers, possibly heavy with the chance of thunder.
Weatherwatch.co.nz believes there will be some activity but to what extent is the challenging question.
The rain radar currently shows such action coming closer to our shores but appears to be breaking up in places as it edges closer.
Aucklanders may see some shower activity, possibly heavy at times but also long dry spells and remaining sticky in the easterly airflow.
Further south and Cantabrians are likely to see rather warm conditions later today after yesterdays very gust and cool nor’ easter.The Coast to Coast is underway again today and as the participants head for Sumner, a northerly is likely to take them head on across the finish line.
