New Zealand is stuck in an unusual weather pattern for November with yet more daytime downpours and thunderstorms forming across the country – not just today, but also Thursday and Friday.
The next few days may see more downpours forming in the north too, placing Waikato, Auckland and Northland more at risk. And the word â€œriskâ€ is important.
These thunderstorms and deluges can be random so people need to use their eyes and ears to ensure they know the weather conditions locally. Even a high risk of a thunderstorm doesnâ€™t guarantee one – but the conditions are very good for thunderstorm formation.
By Saturday the South Island looks drier and by Sunday most of New Zealand should be mainly dry and, perhaps, even thunderstorm free.
