A cyclone is forming near Queensland but NZ’s 7 day rainfall map looks dry for many


We are seeing the tropics wake up with a high chance of a cyclone forming well north of New Zealand and likely affecting Queensland later next week and may be a severe cyclone.

In the New Zealand area we have the 7 day rainfall accumulation map and it’s showing a very dry forecast for a large portion of NZ in the week to come.

In saying that, rain makers are now building all around us but until high pressure breaks up we won’t be seeing much rain.

However the West Coast has rain in the forecast in the days ahead and some will spillover into Canterbury too.
