VIDEO: Dry areas drying out again but a rainmaker possible next week


Wet areas are drying out this week but so too are dry areas as NZ sits in between weather systems. We have a weak high to our west and a weak low to our north.

This set up means the weather around NZ is fairly quiet with the next cold front not arriving until Friday on the West Coast and Southland and then disintegrating over the North Island’s western side on Saturday.

Airflows this weekend start to warm up and overnight lows warm up too as sub-tropical wind flows come back for some areas in the north. However next week, around Tuesday, we may have a nationwide rainmaker. It isn’t yet locked in because high pressure could block it - but the best chance in a while at some northern rain may be forming next week.
