Daytime heating, together with wind convergence about eastern Otago, will help generate showers and a moderate risk of isolated thunderstorms during this afternoon and this evening.
These thunderstorms, if they occur, could bring localised heavy rain of 10mm to 20 mm per hour and small hail.
There is also a low risk of thunderstorms extending to north Otago.
