Auckland monthly rain hit "normal" for the 1st time since September. The Airport saw 105mm in May (96% of normal). The lawn may be a tad squishy, but we still need to conserve water after 16 months of dry weather in Auckland. The dams are still at 44% of normal ^GG

And here's your outlook for Tuesday. A cold start, but a lot more sunshine in the North Island than we've seen for the last couple of days. The lower South Island continues its run of sun, but high cloud sneaks across in the afternoon. ^TA

A frosty start for many tomorrow. If you're inland and the sky is clear, there's a good chance you might see some frost. Skies clear over much of NZ tonight, so expect a cooler start to Tuesday. ^TA

Along with the rain, this low system has brought strong winds, and also big (messy) swells for the East Coast and Bay of Plenty. Waves ease tomorrow, but will clean up too 🏄 ^TA
