A CLOUDY START TO TUESDAY – EARLY SHOWERS & DRIZZLE RISK.

Good evening. It’s been another cloudy and cooler day across the region, with more ‘healthy’ rainfall totals recorded about many areas (25-40mm.) Christchurch also received some much needed rain, with anywhere between 25-35mm recorded across the city at 5:45pm.

Omarama grabbed top honours with 17.2 degrees, while most towns and areas hovered around 14-15 degrees. The full list of the daily ‘highs’ below.

A few more ‘bands’ of  rain, showers & drizzle will continue to linger through the remainder of Monday and into Tuesday morning about the Canterbury Plains & Coast before we see some late sunny spells.

This evening there remains a risk of a few thundery falls about the Main Divide & Canterbury Headwaters; risk is currently low.

Milder weather moves in over the weekend, as winds switch to the northwest, with sunny skies and variable high cloud cover.
