The first band of rain in a month is expected to cross New Zealand this weekend bringing some relief to those that need the rain.
For others, the timing may not be perfect with a sunny week followed by a wetter, cloudier weekend! Odd how that often happens isnâ€™t it!?
The next few days see high pressure dominating, some inland downpours and dry and warmer than average elsewhere. Although we must point out Dunedin may not be so warm today and tomorrow.
By Friday rain returns to the West Coast – then continues through the weekend. Some of this rain will reach the North Island on Sunday PM but we donâ€™t expect everyone to get rain – or to get much. But it is good to see some rain after such a long dry spell. No video from us on Wednesday, but we return on Thursday with the latest on the rain for the weekend.
