Where will the heavy rain go? That’s the question we’re facing today as a fairly weak low in the Tasman Sea links up with the sub-tropics and pulls warm northerlies and areas of rain and showers down on to the country today, tonight and early tomorrow.
There are a few fronts, but the main one will run north to south and will pull down rain over northern and western regions over the next 24 hours.
However not everyone is in for rain – eastern areas should stay fairly dry today but rain is expected in the north and west of both islands and the south of the South Island.
For north facing regions, like Nelson, Northland and Bay of Plenty, there may be some heavy falls developing over the next 24 hours – but while some areas could receive a solid period of rain, neighbouring centres may receive very little with the rain quite fragmented.
Keep an eye on our rain and sat maps and we’ll update you later today with conditions.
