Here’s what is making the weather headlines today.
MAINLY SETTLED START TO THE WEEK
High pressure covers much of New Zealand today bringing mainly settled weather, there are a few showers about though. Showers are likely north of Auckland especially in the east, about inland parts of the lower North Island expect a few showers especially this afternoon then clearing this evening. Finally Fiordland has a few showers and perhaps Southland this evening.
About the Central Plateau this afternoon, one or two isolated showers could become heavy due to some low level instability then clearing this evening.
CHANCE OF HEAVY RAIN ON TUESDAY – EASTERN NORTHLAND
An easterly airflow picks up a little for the upper North Island on Tuesday thanks to an area of low pressure moving in from the north. This brings in some rain for eastern Northland from afternoon and this rain could become heavy, especially in the evening.
RAIN END OF THE WEEK – NORTH ISLAND
Rain pushes down from the north on Friday over the upper North Island in an increasing easterly airflow, Saturday rain spreads further southwards and gets into the east coast of the North Island. The front bringing this rain slowly clears out to the east on Sunday then isolated showers develop in the afternoon for both Islands thanks to some humid moist air moving in behind the aforementioned front.
