Wet weather in sight

A slow and fairly disorganised low is going to slowly drift towards New Zealand by Friday and the weekend says, meaning a possibly wet start to the holidays for some areas.

The low, which is expected to push a front over the country on Friday and Saturday, most likely lacks the oomph to bring severe weather but heavy rain is likely along the entire West Coast and into Taranaki.  It’s unclear if rain warnings will be issued at this stage.

Patchy rain or showers, with long dry spells, is the general forecast for northern and southern regions of both islands predicts

Eastern parts of the North Island, such as Gisborne and Hawkes Bay, are unlikely to receive much rain, if any.

Showers should spill over into eastern areas of the South Island, but again very low amounts are expected.

Showery conditions will last until the end of the weekend with sunny weather predicted next week for most.

What is the weather looking like for Saturday evening in Taranaki? I have checked several sources and they are all different and conflicting.

That is a rainy looking front over Auckland City at the moment. More cumulus on the way V.slowly from the W. Dramatic skies about, showing cirrus & cumulus.

No fronts in Auckland today,could be some convergence there with seabreeze action?

Possibly not – we’re expecting rain on Saturday for a time, then showers on Sunday.  Next week looks dry but potentially next weekend looks wet again!
