March begins with a lot of low air pressure (+3 Maps)


Filed in:

Low pressure dominates around New Zealand this weekend while next week another large low will affect the nation.

This means that March is likely to kick off warm and wet for many areas, despite a brief cool down next week in the lower South Island.

Today a low in the eastern Tasman Sea will weaken entirely and fall apart, while a weak low north of NZ drifts closer.

The remnants of the Tasman Sea low will bring more rain to the West Coast on Sunday while the northern low will bring rain, possibly heavy, to Northland Sunday and showers into more regions in the North Island on Monday.

Towards the mid to end of next week a much larger sub-tropical low will move down over the North Island bringing more rain.
