The same system or band of rain if you will that caused the torrential rain in Auckland on Tuesday is still hanging around although it is packing less punch. The Wairarapa is set to get some rain out of this band today fed by a depression and associated southeasterly airflow, 30 to 40mm of rain can be expected to fall in the ranges there. Temperatures will be on the cool side at 11 or 12 degrees.
The other interesting feature of the weather today will no doubt be the morning fog anywhere north of the Central North Island through to Auckland, hopefully it doesn’t cause any travel disruptions and isn’t too heavy. Once it clears mostly sunny weather will be on the cards with light winds.
The West Coast of the South Island will again be the pick of the bunch as the alps block cloud and rain coming over from the east in the southeasterly airflow.
