VIDEO: Southland is basically in drought, more rain then showers for eastern NI

Drought conditions are setting in across Southland and despite some showers this week the region leans drier than average for not only the next few days but potentially the next couple of weeks.

We track what is happening there – and side note, we have more details coming out this Friday in our April ClimateWatch update.

Elsewhere and the eastern North Island (especially northern Hawke’s Bay, Gisborne and East Cape) has more wet weather this week – but conditions ease later in the week.

High pressure dominates elsewhere – but a low that will hug eastern Australia this week will grow into a large Tasman Sea storm by this weekend – but for now, looks to be mostly at sea.
