Tuesday’s national forecast

Unsettled weather is slowly returning to New Zealand.

Showers are a pretty good bet today for the western South Island.  In fact, Fiordland and the southern West Coast are under heavy rain warnings for today into early Wednesday.  The rain is expected to slide northward into Nelson during the evening.  However, the heavy falls should remain about the southern West Coast and Fiordland.

Coastal sections of Southland and Otago could also get into some shower activity.  However, nothing is expected until sunset or later and whatever does fall will be pretty light.

All of these areas will be a bit cool today with afternoon temperatures struggling to reach the 20 degree mark.

As far as the rest of the South Island goes, it looks like it should be a settled day.  Highs should be in the low to mid 20’s.

On the North Island, most areas should be dry and settled during the early part of the day.  As we work our way into the afternoon and evening, a few showers may pop up about Auckland and the Coromandel Peninsula.

Highs will be in the low to mid 20’s.

It’s been very pleasant in Invercargill so far – ‘officially’ 21 and it hasn’t been a struggle getting there.
