Here’s what is making the weather headlines today.
FAR SOUTH STAYS DRY
Many regions around New Zealand are looking to experience rain or showers today, it’s probably more interesting to spot out the one place that stays dry. Southland and a fair chunk of Otago look to stay mainly dry today but while that sounds nice it’s looking quite cloudy with temperatures sticking below 10 degrees. Parts of North Otago may see a few light drizzle patches at times.
LOW DEEPENS OVERNIGHT
A low deepens east of New Zealand overnight with some heavy rain developing for the lower North Island, some heavy rain may spread into North Canterbury on Thursday morning. Southwesterly winds strengthen overnight about Canterbury through to Wellington / Wairarapa, winds rise to gale about the coast, possibly severe gale on Thursday morning.
