Weather analyst Philip Duncan with nzherald.co.nz bring you the latest on the large Tasman Sea low that’s heading towards the North Island and will bring a warmer, wetter week to the island – starting with a band of rain overnight tonight and across Tuesday – then a few days of cloud, showers, patches of rain and even some sun (messy forecast!).
The South Island is on the edge of this low which means cloudy, cooler weather will continue for most regions, but the lower South Island will see some of the sunniest and driest weather, ahead of the next cold snap this weekend.

After a very pleasant June here in Lower Northland it will be interesting to see what July holds. June for us has seen below average rainfall (total for June 85 mils. average about 145 mils) and very little wind. In May I commented that pukeko still had chicks on the ground which for this area is most unusual. Do you as forecasters ever take into consideration, what nature is showing you? eg. animal behaviour, plants doing unseasonable things etc.
