We have the latest on the deep storm in the Southern Ocean. While itâ€™s a long way from the North Island it will send a burst of rain there today but the days ahead donâ€™t look too bad.
The South Island, on the other hand, has more heavy rain on the West Coast off and on until Sunday.
Winds will ease back a little over Wednesday and Thursday in a number of regions but they surge back again on Friday and Saturday as the low – which will be weakening by then – finally moves in towards NZ.
The low is likely to fall apart on Sunday/Monday over or near NZ.
