Northern Exposure to wind and rain

MetService News Release
Monday, 07 Jul 2014

Northern Exposure to wind and rain

It's a fine start to the week for most , except for those north of the Bombay Hills, and this setup is likely to continue for the first half of the week as a low approaching Northland brings rain and strong winds from Auckland northwards. The wind and rain will ease briefly midweek before picking up again towards the weekend and spreading over Nelson and the West Coast.

A Severe Weather Warning has been issued for heavy rain and severe easterly gales over Northland whilst a Watch has been issued for the north of Auckland, Coromandel and eastern Waikato. Further watches and warnings are likely to be issued later in the week as a strengthening northerly flow brings widespread rain later in the week.

The weekend was a mix of showers and fine weather, with quite chilly starts in many areas. At Pukaki Airfield temperatures dipped to -4 degrees and Waiouru to -3, yesterday. While the air will be somewhat warmer in the north of the North Island, the trend for chilly starts and fine days is set to continue for many South Island areas, apart from low cloud or fog in some eastern places. "Further south, especially about the South Island ski fields, conditions should be great outdoors until the winds strengthen late in the week," Meteorologist Rob Kerr commented.
