Spring is known for its fast moving weather pattern, but as we head towards the equinox next Friday (traditionally the kick-off for spring’s windiest weather), a low pressure system is likely to develop around northern New Zealand then stall over the North Island for much of next week.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says the low has the potential to hang around from the weekend to Wednesday or Thursday next week.
The computer models continue to chop and change precisely where this low will be placed, but the models we trust are showing it stalling around/over the North Island from this Sunday to about next Wednesday or Thursday.
Whether it happens exactly like this remains to be seen, but as of next week the low will likely be ‘blocked in’ over New Zealand by large high pressure to the south, east and west – so the chances of it ‘hanging around’ are greatly increased says WeatherWatch.co.nz.
