Philip Duncan and nzherald.co.nz bring you the latest on the severe weather around Nelson – and more heavy showers are coming in this afternoon and evening.
We then take a look at the weekend – as the low drifts in over northern New Zealand bringing heavy showers and the risk of thunder.
The South Island sees the weather generally improving – with a big high moving in.
And for Christmas? Well – the forecast still looks positive – but there is a big rainmaker that may develop to our north.
