The slow-moving weather system that brought heavy downpours, some waterspouts and funnel clouds to northern areas on Wednesday is likely to make its presence felt again on Thursday and Friday afternoons.

“We continue to have the right ingredients in place,” commented MetService Weather Ambassador, Bob McDavitt. “Warm, moist air, combined with converging winds in the lower levels of the atmosphere, and day time heating.”

Thunderstorm activity is possible this afternoon and again on Friday afternoon in many North Island places. Today, the largest storms are likely in Northland and over the central North Island. Tomorrow, they could be just about anywhere north of Hunterville. “If you hear thunder, seek shelter,” added McDavitt.
