A short interruption to the arrival of Spring

Another low approaches the upper parts of the North Island, bringing with it more rain, heavy falls and thunder. "This rain will be a real concern for many, due to the ground being already saturated after this past weekend, " commented MetService meteorologist Elke Louw.

The low is expected to track to the east, with the rain bands slowly spreading to the central parts of the North Island by Friday. The South Island will, for the most part, remain fine in the west but experience morning and evening cloud in the east, as well as a few showers in the south.

The rain in the north of the North Island is expected to ease as we head into the weekend, but will be setting in for Hawke's Bay and Gisborne from Friday. "It is looking like a showery and breezy game for the All Blacks on Saturday in Napier, with the showers only starting to clear on Sunday for that region," Louw said.

A change to colder southerlies is expected overnight Sunday and into Mondayfor the South Island. "It is going to be wet and windy with snow flurries possible about the hills, especially for central Otago and inland Southland on Sundaynight," Louw said. The colder southerly winds are expected to race up to the central parts of the North Island by Monday afternoon.
