La Nina weather patterns seem to be waking up in the NZ area with a deluge coming for the West Coast and Nelson area with spillover into Marlborough and Canterbury over the next four days.
The North Island misses out on the bulk of this rain for now – but from this Sunday and across next week the North Island also has heavy rain chances.
We bring you the latest forecast through until Sunday. ClimateWatch — Our next ClimateWatch update for the month of February and March will be out tomorrow, Feb 2.

Hi Phillip, no mention at all of the SI Westcoast drought? A far more unusual weather pattern for that part of the country than the North Island at this time of year. Good to finally hear that the rain coming is significant, however disappointing to not have it acknowledged.
