Warm before the snap – Weather risks for Tuesday

Today’s northeasterly windflow above, coupled with mostly clear skies for the day means that risks are few and far between – until late on, when some shower activity is possible for parts of the South Island.
This of course is all ahead of a dramatic change in our weather, set for Wednesday – which also brings increased chances for rain across the country too…

Today though, isolated showers may develop over parts of the South Island, namely Canterbury, Southland and Otago – though coastal Otago is the only area with any real weather “risks” so to speak.
This area is set for the heaviest of any shower activity, with possible thunderstorms accompanying any steady or heavy falls on the coast this afternoon and evening.

Everywhere else is looking in the clear…until tomorrow.

Watch this space for a more detailed rain update coming later today!
