Here’s what is making the weather headlines this weekend.
LOW PRESSURE MOVES AWAY
A low pressure system that brought some unstable weather to the North Island yesterday is moving away to the southeast today. Showers out west mostly clear this evening while in the east showers continue for much of today although Gisborne may not see showers until this afternoon.
FRONT MOVES INTO THE FAR SOUTH LATER TODAY
While it won’t do very much apart from bringing thickening cloud and perhaps a few light showers, a front moves into the lower South Island later today. Cloud thickens up the east coast overnight.

Eastern regions are cloudy, east to northeasterly winds for the eastern South Island and southeasterly winds for the eastern North Island. A few light showers or drizzle patches possible, mainly about the eastern North Island. The western North Island has a mainly sunny day then later on cloud develops for Coromandel through to eastern Northland bringing a shower or two. The West Coast has a mostly cloudy day too, perhaps more in the form of mid and high level cloud, light showers for South Westland later in the day.
