VIDEO: RainWatch (Feb 23) – NZ’s 7 day rainfall outlook

As we’re doing every Friday now, here’s the latest on the upcoming wet weather for the weekend. The cold front will be heaviest in the west of both islands, especially the lower half of the South Island.

But the western North Island has the chance of 20 to 40mm in some locations. The front is patchy which means it’s “hit and miss” – other may have less than 15mm.

Eastern areas of both main islands look driest with perhaps only 1 to 15mm coming over the weekend. Next week another weak front moves into the South Island around Tuesday – but it gets pushed eastwards before it has a chance to really come into the North Island.

We also take a look at the general 7 day rainfall forecast for New Zealand.

Don’t forget our new app and our websites both have estimated rainfall totals – please use that for more detail and to make sense of the maps used in this video.

Have a great weekend!
