Christchurch is warm again today. No sign of showers ?

There has been persistent drizzly rain in Tauranga since 4pm Thursday, as of 10am Friday it is still drizzling – certainly not what you would consider to be an isolated shower. It has been mostly light drizzle, but on some occasions the drizzle has been reasonably heavy.

I think this might be one of the rare occasions where you have got the forecast wrong – is there a thin stationary convergence zone over Tauranga or something??

WW Forecast Team on 21/04/2011 10:30pm

Hi there, yes a small trough is passing over Tauranga – few heavy showers also moving in to Auckland.  It’s a little more widespread than we predicted, so apologies for that.  Looks like it will move through this morning though.  We knew there was an increased shower risk today but the band of showers is certainly a little larger than we predicted unfortunately!
