Weather maps all week have been indicating a low is likely to develop in the sub-tropics directly north of New Zealand around Sunday/Monday however the Weather Watch Centre says it’s still too early to say if it’s going to bring a dampener to some campers in northern New Zealand.
Thick cloud has already started to build just north of the country and an easterly breeze has started to blow over Northland.
The Weather Watch Centre says holidaymakers shouldn’t be concerned at this stage but keep up to date with the latest weather news and forecasts at WeatherWatch.co.nz.
Hot weather is expected to return to a number of places between Waikato and Central Otago Saturday with nor’westers building in the far south.
Mostly dry weather is expected for much of New Zealand for the third stat day off work for many.
Meanwhile our New Year’s Eve forecast hasn’t changed in the past 24 hours. An approaching system looks set to drive hot nor’westers over much of New Zealand – with blustery conditions expected over central parts of the nation and temperatures pushing 30 and over in the east.
