As the ex-cyclone passes…The Big Picture on Thursday

Our weather is coming from the south and east of the country on Thursday, as ex tropical cyclone Victor finally passes by – meaning showers and swells once again on the country’s northeastern coast.

A southerly airflow lies over the North island, with Victor moving slowly just off East Cape for much of the day, while an east to southeasterly flow lies over the South Island.
For the North Island, there is heavy rain about East Cape, though it should stay mainly dry elsewhere after any early morning showers clear.
In the afternoon and towards evening, isolated showers move back in again for some – with the chance of a heavy fall or two.

It’s looking fairly cloudy in the east of the South Island with some drizzle about, while sunnier areas dominate in the west

Hi Guys,

Would like to clarify some weather for Northland area. I see for Friday and Saturday Kaitaia has sun and no rain, but for Whangarei there is showers and stormy rains.

I’m trying to figure whether to risk camping or not up 30km north of Dargaville in the westcoast.

Is my tent going to end up getting flooded next 2 days? 🙂

Thank you in advance!
