A brief sigh of relief for the far north

A brief sigh of relief for the far north


As the rain continues to fall up north, the South Island is expected to remain mainly fine. "The low pressure that is bringing rain onto the upper half of the North Island is expected to move away slowly to the east over the next few days," MetService Meteorologist Elke Louw said. "This will come as a welcome relief for the many people that have been affected in the region."

As this low starts to move away, the rain is expected to shift its focus to Gisborne and Hawke's Bay. "Conditions for the the upper North Island are set to dry out, with the winds dying away and a lot more blue sky and sunshine to be seen," Louw went on to say.

The South Island remains under the influence of a persistent area of high pressure, bringing more clear skies for most along with light winds. "However, the Marlborough region is going to see a bit of cloud, as well as some patchy coastal drizzle, and coastal Canterbury will see morning and evening cloudy periods as well," Louw said.

A break in the weather is expected as we head into the middle of the week,with another area of high pressure set to cover most of the country.However, this will be short lived as another low, accompanied by rain, makes its way from the Tasman towards the upper North Island on Thursday.
