The National Weather Service predicts a high of 56 degrees and a 30-percent chance of showers. "Rainfall amounts will range from.5" to 1.5" through Thursday. Very heavy rain may lead to some flooding. Another round of steadier showers arrives Thursday afternoon and evening. Temperatures may take all day to warm. Ice, sleet, and snow accumulation will be light, so impacts will be minor but there may be some icy spots. There's a daily chance of a little rain or snow.

This afternoon through Thursday midday: Northeasterly with a light to moderate breeze of 04 to 13 miles per hour. Cool low 40s or even upper 30s are possible Friday night.

With our front off the coast in time for the holiday weekend, the prospects for a dry Easter and Passover look pretty good, although temperatures will trend slightly cooler behind our front.

Friday looks to be dry for many places on the North Island, with just a few showers expected for parts of the central and upper North Island. Despite clouds staying mostly cloudy, Wednesday afternoon highs will still get into the middle & upper 40s.

"As we head into mid-week it remains cold with a risk of snow for all areas, although this is most likely over northern high ground". Meteorologists say temperatures will be warm enough for rain in most areas, but snow is possible in the higher elevations both Sunday night and Monday. There is a 20% chance for a few spotty showers tomorrow with a high of 64 degrees.

We had a large snow event over the weekend and all of that snow melt has saturated the ground so much of this rain will have nowhere to go. Probably best to have the Easter egg hunts indoors this year.
