Here’s what is making the weather headlines today.
CLOUD KEEPS A LID ON TEMPERATURES
A fair amount of cloud cover keeps temperatures from lifting above the early twenties for most, perhaps inland parts of Northland have a whiskers chance of reaching the mid twenties. The eastern South Island will likely stay in the late teens.
AFTERNOON SHOWERS TODAY AND TOMORROW – NORTH ISLAND
Some increased surface moisture brings a chance of afternoon showers today and tomorrow for inner parts of the North Island. Upper air cools a bit more on Wednesday though and this brings deeper convection which could lead to a few showers becoming heavy with thunderstorms.
Keep up to date with any thunderstorm chances from Metservice here.
RAIN ARRIVES FOR THE NORTH ISLAND THU / FRI
A low brings in rain to the upper North Island on Thursday then spread south on Friday, heavy falls look possible especially in areas exposed to the east.
Meanwhile the eastern South Island is quite dry, a front moves onto the lower South Island on Friday bringing rain, the front moves northwards up the east coast later in the day bringing showers.
