Wednesday Newsfeed: Low lingers off eastern North Island bringing more rain to east

Low pressure remains off the eastern North Island and coupled with high pressure further south the two are producing a south-east flow into the North Island and upper South Island.

Rain continues along the eastern North Island, in particular the Hawke’s Bay region. See latest MetService warnings and watches here. Patchy lighter rain, drizzle showers will extend further down the eastern side of the South Island for Wednesday too, potentially as far south as Dunedin.

Wet weather narrows on Thursday but again the Hawke’s Bay area is still in that squash zone between low pressure and high pressure, meaning the rain and SE winds continue there with heavy falls possible in the ranges. Slips, localised flooding and some road closures are possible over Wednesday and Thursday.

But this set-up makes for drier weather in western parts of the NI and for many SI regions.
