Wednesday’s national forecast

A pair of weather systems will bring showers and wind to both islands today.

The South Island will be the first to see showers and wind as a weak disturbance moves from south to north.

Southland and Otago will see the shower chances in the morning.  By afternoon, those chances will move into the middle part of the island.  Then by evening, upper regions of the island could see some showers.

On the North Island, shower chances will be hard to come by during the daylight hours.  A few passing showers are possible about Auckland and Gisborne.  By evening, a low that is centred to the north of New Zealand will start to spread showers across the north-eastern sections of the island.  That means that from Northland to Napier, there is a good chance for seeing showers.  Along with the showers will come the gusty southeasterlies.

Highs today for the South Island will be mainly in the teens with some lower 20’s expected for the upper South Island.

Highs today for the North Island will be lower to middle 20’s.

Been wet here in Whangarei since very early this morning. Light drizzle at first interspersed with stronger showers. All grey but not too cold with temp in high teens.
