A wet start to the week then drier


A wet start to the week then drier


A deep and active low is expected to slowly slide across the country during the early part of this week, making for quite wet and windy weather for much of the country.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented,"the brunt of the wet and windy weather will be felt on the back of the low across eastern areas of the country as it slides slowly east during Monday and Tuesday".

An area of persistent rain will linger for a time across Otago and parts of Canterbury, before drifting north during Tuesday. Elsewhere there will be scattered showers and possible thunderstorms, especially across the North Island, during late Monday and Tuesday. Thunderstorms that do develop could also be accompanied by heavy downpours, small hail and strong gusty winds

The colder air in the wake of this active low will drop the snow level,bringing a fresh coating of snow to higher ground of the South Island.

On Wednesday the low will gradually drift east of the country accompanied by clearing skies for most with only a few lingering showers for the east coast of the North Island.

The end of the week should be dry countrywide, as a weak anticyclone drifts across the country.
