The young paddlers are preparing for the upcoming local and international competitions including the Vaka Eiva event later in the year.
Cook Islands Meteorological Service director Arona Ngari says rain should clear by tomorrow.
Ngari says south to southeastly wind is bringing cool winds which has resulted in the chilly weather.
At 5.30pm yesterday, temperatures in Rarotonga dropped to 20 degrees Celsius and Ngari said some light showers are expected.
“This should at least clear by Thursday and then some warm and moist air by the weekend due to a frontal system moving closer to the Southern Cooks from the west,” he added.
Meanwhile a low pressure system will continue to affect both the Southern and Northern Cook Islands with more showers and thunderstorms.
