With the ‘messy’ weather covering much of the country in the last day or two, is there a chance that our weather maybe somewhat sticky in the northern part of the nation as we approach a new month?
Weatherwatch head analyst Philip Duncan said the year’s first low signalled February could be more tropical, with higher temperatures and more rain.
Most of yesterday’s expected heavy rain skirted around Northland and fell in the central North Island, he said.
“It’s not looking good for the Far North. The rain was barely enough to water your garden with. They won’t be seeing a drought-buster for at least seven to 10 days.”
Further south and colder air is likely to see temperatures fall for the weekend with some rather miserable conditions in eastern areas. Southerlies are set to roll north today with another cold front expected to retain the cold air tomorrow and possibly hanging around on Sunday.
