Thursday Newsfeed: Front moves up NZ and falls apart

A cold front is moving up the country and heads into the North Island today and tonight – but it’s weak and crumbling apart as it heads northwards. Track on rain radar and use our detailed hourly forecasts for general start and end times.

Please note the patchy nature of this rain band means rainfall totals at the lower end (below 10mm) may shift around a little. Like a paint brush on wood starting to running out of paint the front won’t be an even spread of rain.

Mild NW winds ahead of the front for many places, with cooler southerly quarter winds behind it.

High pressure starts to expand into NZ on Friday and then across the weekend.

Don’t forget Daylight Saving ends this weekend – clocks fall back 1 hour overnight Saturday/Sunday morning. That makes this Sunday 25 hours long for those keen on some extra weekend sleep in time!
