Supercomputer Weather: Rain, Rain And More Rain

According to the NOAA Supercomputer’s medium range forecast model, rain which finally started falling today in drought affected Wellington, is likely to hang around for some time.

The final vestiges of the rain system presently over the country are not forecast to leave the country till next week. Meanwhile South Island farmers will be pleased to learn that at long last some rain is forecast for the drought affected South Island East Coast, and that more rain is forecast for the following weekend as well.

The image below shows rain falling across most of the country on Saturday May 5.

The following links show the forecast progression of the rain event over New Zealand between now and Monday May 7th.

At the extreme outer limit of the NOAA supercomputer’s model another rain system is forecast to arrive across the Tasman Sea around Sunday May 13th. This system, shown in the image below, is even larger than the system presently approaching New Zealand.
