Hi Philip, At Port Albert, Wellsford we have had less than five mls in the last week. Ponds are nearly dry. Starting to get serious. Watch you religously on country tv Looks good from time to time but the rain just has not arrived this year. Cheers Ross.

Hi Ross, thanks for the local update – it’s very important for us to hear from people like you! Hopefully in a couple days we can be in a position to talk about the next chance of rain in the second week of April. Definitely not locked in yet but it is showing up so hopefully on Monday we’ll have more details. I know it’s getting dire now in some locations so we’re going to put much more focus on that now that we’re ending March. Cheers – and all the best

We have had enough rain now in PUKEKOHE. What can we expect for the next 6 weeks/ 2 months, while we are busy with the potato harvest. Will we get an early wet winter since we are down on rain fall.

Hi Murray, that’s terrific to hear. We need the potatoes this year more than ever! We expect fairly average conditions (maybe leaning a little drier still) but nothing yet jumping out over the next month that suggests a major weather pattern shift to the one we have right now. We’ll have a more detailed April outlook this coming Tuesday.

Just asking is it normal for day highs in April to be 20 or 21 or that is above average?

Will taupo receive heavy rain tomorrow or just light showers ?? Cheers

Taupo shouldn’t see heavy rain but a period of rain none the less will likely move through for a time late morning through till late afternoon / early evening then easing to the odd shower.
