Here’s what is making the weather headlines today.
SOUTH WESTLAND THE PLACE TO BE
Fiordland and South Westland are the places to be today, a southerly airflow over the South Island means the Main Divide blocks any wet or cloudy weather moving into the aforementioned regions.
Temperatures will likely get up to about 16 degrees.
THUNDERSTORMS – NORTH ISLAND
Some instability should develop for the North Island today, first this morning for Auckland then a higher chance exists further southwards this afternoon.
The risk for the ranges of Buller and Tasman while still there has subsided.
Keep an eye on today’s thunderstorm chances from Metservice here.
LOW PRESSURE FRIDAY / SATURDAY – NORTH ISLAND
A low pressure system hangs about the North Island for Friday and Saturday. Friday sees a chance of heavy rain Auckland northwards and for the east coast, winds are reasonably gusty from the southeast also.
On Saturday the low unravels a bit with winds calming down, there will still be pockets of rain or showers though, perhaps an afternoon unstable fall.
