Showers were the noticeable factor today across parts of the North Island and in some cases they stayed around a little longer than expected.
The Coromandel Peninsula and Bay of Plenty plus parts of Gisborne saw some reasonable falls this afternoon and Auckland looked as if it might receive something but not a lot came from the cloudbank, if anything at all.
Wellington missed out on most of the activity and yet Palmerston North saw a few skiffs before it headed eastwards earlier today.
On our Facebook page Kimberley mentioned earlier today..”Raining reasonably heavy at Cooks Beach/Hahei/hot water beach at the moment. Been going for about 40 mins so far”.
Nikki posted”Enough to leave a puddle at the end of my driveway in gisborne”.
Other parts of the island didn’t leave a lot to be desired…”None here but ground was wet 5 k up the road hate that. Joys of living on the coast of Opunake” Deanne commented.
Tina from the Far North had this to say…”Shower at 4.30am in Dargaville, lasted 15mins, then nothing. Cooler temps though”
“A few miniscule spots on the window but nothing of any real help. Stratford” said Sharalee and Marilyn had her rainguage collecting a minimal amount “0.2ml in Putaruru, Sth Waikato, to be exact.”
According to David, Tauranga did ok..”persistent but light rain all morning in tauranga, farmers will be lapping this up, just the sort of rain they need, no runoff. But lots more required”.
Tonight, any remaining showers are forecast to disappear otherwise mostly clear skies seems to be how Tuesday night is shaping up and fairly cool across northern areas.
Southerners might see the wind start to come in from the northwest as a front is set to whistle through tomorrow.
