A low to the north
For the third weekend in a row, a low is expected to pass near northern New Zealand.
"This low is different from the previous two, which passed across the seas well to the north of the North Island," commented MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett. "This time, the low is expected to cross the North Island overnight Saturday, with its point of crossing likely to be very close to Auckland."
"Through Saturday, the weather over the northern half of the North Island is expected to be showery, with thunderstorms and some heavy falls of rain possible," Corbett went on to say. "On Sunday, the northern half of the North Island should become fine."
For eastern areas from Gisborne to Otago, the weekend is likely to be fairly dreary, with easterly rain. MetService has issued a Severe Weather Watch for the Kaikoura Ranges.
"In contrast, the West Coast of the South Island can expect generally fine weather on Saturday and Sunday, with daytime highs into the mid teens," added Corbett.
