Monday's National Forecast

Posted by WW Forecast Team on Mon, 26/11/2018 - 04:00

A low pressure system fires an easterly quarter airflow over the South Island today meanwhile most of the North Island has northwesterlies. Unsettled weather for the majority to follow.

North Island
Expect areas of cloud and showers at times. Gisborne and perhaps Hawkes Bay have a dry start. This afternoon showers ramp up with isolated heavy falls and some thunder possible. Northland, Auckland, eastern Waikato and Bay Of Plenty sees a higher risk of these downpours in the afternoon. Also Taranaki across to Hawkes Bay and about Gisborne.
Wairarapa and Wellington sees rain with heavy falls possible, this rain slinks a little southwards as the day moves along easing from the north. Southern Wairarapa and Wellington (especially eastern Wellington) sees heavy rain for much of the day. Winds from the southeast.

High's in the low to mid twenties for the upper North Island, mid to high teens for the lower North Island.

South Island
Marlborough and Nelson has a rainy day, heavy falls at times especially for Marlborough and the northwest Nelson area. Conditions dry up about Nelson overnight. Canterbury has areas of rain for much of the day, inland areas will see more persistent falls while nearer the coast conditions will be a bit more patchy with dry spells now and then. Winds from the east or southeast. Otago has cloudy skies near the coast, the odd shower or drizzle patch at times especially Otago Peninsula northwards. Central Otago has longer dry spells with perhaps even some sun breaking through, but a shower now and then can't be ruled out either.
Southland and Fiordland will by quite dry with areas of sun and warm temperatures. Coastal Southland sees breezy easterlies. A slight disclaimer, Fiordland may see an isolated shower or two about the ranges late afternoon / evening.

For North Westland, expect areas of cloud with a shower or two possible, showers become more likely about Buller. South Westland is mainly sunny with some high cloud. Winds from the southeast. Once you go into the ranges up in the main divide you will likely head into shower activity however moving in from the eastern side of the South Island.

Temperatures in the low to mid teens for the eastern and upper South Island then returning to the high teens or perhaps early twenties for Southland and along the West Coast.

Sunday's National Forecast

Posted by WW Forecast Team on Sun, 25/11/2018 - 04:00

The large low that recently affecting southern and eastern Australia continues to move towards New Zealand and brings another day of downpours in the north and patchy rain and showers elsewhere.

NORTH ISLAND:
Morning rain or showers again push down from the north and should intensify further as it moves into the central North Island and Bay of Plenty, fed by northerly quarter winds. Heavy falls are possible in BOP, East Cape and even Gisborne. This front moves into the eastern and lower North Island in the afternoon (rain likely in dry Hawke's Bay). Should stay dry or mainly dry in Wellington until much later in the day with rain at night. There may be a few thunderstorms in the central North Island.
Highs: 16 to 23

SOUTH ISLAND:
More patchy rain along the eastern coastline from Coastal Otago up to Marlborough. Perhaps a few heavier falls in Canterbury here and there, especially inland. Driest in Southland and the West Coast but a fairly dry day in Nelson and Blenheim too - but late rain arrives and may be heavy at night from the north. Winds generally from the easterly quarter. Coolest weather in coastal Otago, warmest on the West Coast.
Highs: 12 to 24
