This map shows the extent and intensity of rain that’s expected to affect New Zealand during the next two days.
Rainfall intensity is indicated by the colour scale, which ranges from 0.125 millimetres per hour (mid blue – very light rain) to more than 50 millimetres per hour (deep orange – torrential rain). The animation moves in one-hour steps.
The forecast data that drives these maps is updated four times daily, so you can be sure you’re looking at the very latest predictions available from NIWAWeather's supercomputer.
