WeatherWatch - Olympic Weather And Rain On The Way
July 27th... Look for a settled day for almost all of New Zealand today. There is a very small chance for some light showers around Gisborne and Northland today, but it's most likely to stay dry. Just like the rest of the country. Tomorrow, look for more of the same. Settled weather is expected across the country. All of this calm and dry weather is thanks to a ridge of high pressure. This ridge is not going to hang around much longer. In fact, by Sunday it should be far enough away to open the door for another Tasmanian low. But this time, unlike the low from earlier this week, this low is likely to be deeper and more aggressive. In addition, it could affect more of the South Island this time. Rain is likely to begin to affect parts of both islands starting on Sunday. On the North Island, Northland, the Coromandel Peninsula and Bay of Plenty could see heavy rain. East Cape/Gisborne could also see heavy rain, but probably not until Monday.
