Rain is in some forecasts for northern New Zealand this weekend but as you’ll see the computer models aren’t in agreement. While there is certainly a risk of rain and showers in the north the latest data suggests the weekend may be sunnier and drier than originally thought… good news for those heading to the beach, but perhaps not so flash for gardeners and farmers. There is rain on the horizon though – a low next week could bring in isolated heavy falls to northern and western areas.
