Once rain clears mostly dry again


Once rain clears mostly dry again

The St Patrick's Day trough brought useful amounts of rain to the northern and central parts of the North Island and the South Island, with 10 to 40mm falling in many places and larger amounts over the Southern Alps and the western ranges of Nelson.

MetService meteorologist John Law commented, "There is still some rain and heavy showers left in this complex trough, but it is only likely to be beneficial to the southern half of the North Island and the north of the South Island."

Law added, "The trough should weaken as it pushes further north and a cooler southerly flow breaks out over the North Island by late Tuesday. The next high is waiting in the wings and is expected to spread across the entire country by the end of the week, bringing a return to mostly dry weather."
