The east-northeasterly airflow sitting across the country will bring hot, humid and drizzly conditions to many eastern parts of New Zealand, at either end of the day.
A large, wet weather system of cloud and humidity is sitting out to our east, which will bring showers to some dry areas on both east coasts.
This may not bring enough to reverse the big dries around the country, but it will provide some relief to those who need it most.
The blizzard of 2015 isn't done yet.
While sparing much of New York and New Jersey, the much talked-about storm managed to wallop parts of New England on Tuesday. And even after producing coastal flooding and dropping several feet of snow (including 30 inches in Framingham, Massachusetts, and up to 6-foot drifts statewide), there's more to come.
There are a few risks around the country today - all related to showers, though they are all fairly isolated too.
An east to southeasterly airflow lies over the North Island today, most regions can expect showers atleast for a time today. In the South Island it is fairly cloudy in the east with some drizzle about, sunnier in the west although showers are possible about the ranges late afternoon / evening.
It's set to be a bit more of an eventful day tomorrow around much of the country, with a low sitting north of the North Island and a northeasterly airflow bringing rain to parts of the south, too.
Thousands of flights have been cancelled as millions of Americans brace for a northeastern winter storm that New York's mayor warned could be one of the biggest blizzards in history.
In our latest RainWatch update we're seeing a change in our weather pattern for the end of the month and the start of February. The main change is a reduction in air pressure - allowing showers to form more easily. The next big high is moving in towards New Zealand from the south - in fact several hundred kilometres further south than the majority of highs we've had so far this year.
There are differing opinions over who should pay for new water storage options in South Canterbury.
Many in the agricultural industry are pushing for further investment in water storage, following a prolonged dry spell in the region that's seen widespread restrictions placed on irrigation.
It's looking fairly risk-free for most of the country today - though there's a chance that showers will be a little persistent at times about northern Hawke's Bay and Gisborne, though any sustained showers will mainly be in the ranges.
