Wednesday’s national forecast

Another sub-tropical low will bring wind and rain to the North Island starting tonight and lasting through early tomorrow.

For the early part of today, much of the North Island will see a few showers from time to time.  The best chance for seeing showers will be about Auckland, the Coromandel Peninsula, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay, and Wellington.

By late afternoon, heavy rain and strong winds will move into Northland.  These conditions will rapidly move across the island tonight into early Thursday.  The low is expected to begin to die out as it moves into the upper regions of the South Island Thursday morning.  Despite weakening, it will still be a pretty big rain maker for the upper South Island for the first part of Thursday.  However, heavy falls are not likely.

For today though, the South Island looking pretty dry and settled.  There are a few chances for showers about Nelson, Marlborough and northern Canterbury.  Otherwise, the rest of the island should see a quiet Wednesday with a mix of sun and clouds.

South Island highs today should be in the upper teens to lower 20’s with some mid 20’s expected for Central Otago.

North Island highs should range from 20-25.
