Rain for some only

Rain for some only

The weather this week will follow a different theme to last week with several weather systems jostling for centre stage.

MetService Media and Communication Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented,"This week will be much greyer and wetter for many of us, but some places can expect decent dry weather."

A slow moving, sub-tropical low across the northeast of the North Island,will keep eastern areas in the cloud and rain through midweek. The damp and grey weather in Wellington for the Royal visitors will slowly brighten by midweek, but return for their visit to Marlborough later in the week. Further south, a front will bring some wet weather across the northern parts of the South Island.

As we head towards the second half of the week, the wet weather across central New Zealand will shift slowly to northern parts of the country. However, the rain is likely to be patchy at this stage, and is not expected to bring much relief to the dry pastures from western Northland to Taihape.

The southern half of the South Island will stay mostly dry over the next several days as an anticyclone stretches across this part of the country.

There will no doubt be some subtle changes in the weather over the next few days, so keep up to date with the latest forecasts and any watches/warnings at metservice.com or on mobile devices at m.metservice.com.You can also follow our updates on MetService TV, @metservice on Twitter and at blog. metservice.com.
