Much of the heavy rain lashing the North Island is expected to miss Manawatu,  MetService says.

Rain was predicted to become "showery'' today, forecaster Geoff Sanders said.

"[Today] we're looking at some showers, and we're looking at some strengthening fresh northwesterly winds. Showers during the day,'' Mr Sanders said.

There were no severe weather warnings for Manawatu.

A cold southwest flow is expected to spread over the country today and tomorrow.

There is likely to be snow above 500 metres in Southland, Fiordland, Clutha and parts of Dunedin early tomorrow.

Strong southwesterlies were likely over much of the country tomorrow, but were expected to ease slightly on Thursday. A reprieve would be shortlived, as the wind was forecast to return on Friday.
