More rain to come

More rain to come


Cloudy and damp weather has been the recent theme across central parts of the country, and will spread across most areas in the next day as another unsettled area of low pressure moves in.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented,"It is quite a complex and messy weather pattern at the moment, but it safe to say for many of us the raincoat will get some good use over the next several days."

A broad area of low pressure over the North Island, along with unstable air and a couple of remnant fronts across central areas, will help bring the risk for further showers to most areas except the far south. Daytime heating could also help trigger some thunderstorms across central parts of the North Island.

A new rainmaker will spread down across the country from the northeast during late Friday into early Saturday.

Any leftover showers with this system will ease slowly during Saturday and a new weather system will spread another spell of rain in from the west on late Sunday and Monday.

Whilst a relief for agriculture, the royal visitors are expected to need the umbrella, with wet weather possible for their visits to Auckland and the Waikato.

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.
