Very large low arrives

A low that has several centres to it has arrived in New Zealand and will take the next few days to slowly cross the country.

By this afternoon the low will have six centres to it, according to MetService weather maps, with several confusing looking fronts that will drape over various regions.

A number of rain warnings have been issued for the country – you’ll find all current warnings by clicking here.

The weekend looks as though it will be unsettled with rain or showers in many northern and western regions.  Some rain is also likely in the east.

But for those sick of the rain and cold there is some good news.  Long dry spells are also expected in between fronts and while skies may be cloudier than they’ve been lately conditions should be warm. predicts northern and eastern regions of the North Island may reach 20 degrees over the next few days with northern New Zealand experiencing mid-teen overnight lows for the next few nights.

In the South Island overnight lows will still be chilly but daytime highs should be in the mid to late teens for most centres.
