RAIN IN THE NORTH TOWARDS THE END OF THE MONTH?
Some regions around New Zealand have had their fair share of rain recently, especially the upper South Island and lower North Island but some areas at either end of the country are still a bit dry. Long range models hint at some rain potential towards the end of February in the far north. This isn’t locked in yet as it is quite a while away but just a heads up about possibilities further out.
