HEAVY RAIN WEST COAST
The West Coast has heavy rain on the way today, continuing on Thursday then gradually on Friday the heaviest rain shifts north to lie over Buller and Tasman. Up to 500 – 750mm of rain is possible about the ranges of Westland and 150 – 250mm nearer the coast. Please keep up to date with the latest warnings by clicking here.
NORTH ISLAND MAY GET HEAVY RAIN FROM SUNDAY
There has been a shift in some models indicating the North Island could get some decent rain from Sunday, a combination of the front that will deliver heavy rain to the West Coast this week moving northwards and some very humid tropical air combine to bring this potential rain maker. There is still room for some details to change here but the models show promise. Although we don’t want too much in one hit as after a dry spell this can cause flooding issues.

WARM OVERNIGHT LOWS
Overnight last night through to this weekend for the North Island overnight lows are going to be very warm; especially for the upper North Island with temperatures not getting below the high teens or perhaps early twenties at times. Canterbury tops the lot though where overnight lows may not dip below the early to mid twenties tonight.
