More smoke and dust from Australia continues to drift over New Zealand today but a change on Sunday may improve air quality levels around the eastern Tasman Sea / NZ area.
For Saturday the smoke and higher air pollution has slid down to central NZ (upper South Island lower North Island).
According to aqicn.org there is moderate air pollution in central New Zealand and this may be leading to some breathing or allergy issues for people who are sensitive to the allergens in the air.
This morning Sydney, like Wellington and parts of Canterbury, has large areas with “moderate” air pollution.
Sunday and Monday should see an improvement in air quality in New Zealand with a southerly change ushering cleaner Southern Ocean airflows in for a time.
