We track the weather as we end May and start June, then take a detailed look at the possible long weekend forecast.
A cold front is crossing the country later Tuesday and early Wednesday. It wonâ€™t deliver a huge amount of rain and will leave a few shower behind on Wednesday – otherwise dry.
For June 1st – which is Gypsy Day for the dairy industry – the forecast looks mainly dry but there may be a few lingering showers here and there.
Friday sees the first rain band from the large low in the Tasman Sea move in – it mainly affects the North Island this long week but is very patchy.
The centre of the low itself should track just north of New Zealand over the long weekend – itâ€™s close enough to keep an eye on but latest modelling suggests the bulk of the wind and rain will be out at sea.
We track the forecast right through until Queens Birthday Monday.
**Please note, we are making improvements to the audio in the very near future.
