Big offshore low creates big swells, brushes NZ

A sizeable low from the sub-tropics is tracking about as close to New Zealand as it will get, bringing dangerous coastal conditions despite lovely weather in many northern beaches.

Big waves will pound eastern beaches of the upper North Island for another day or two yet with advising beach-goers to take extra care with larger rogue waves and stronger rips and currents.

Meanwhile the low is now appearing on the nationwide tax funded rain radar system. This rain radar image (from 4:21pm) shows the offshore low just brushing East Cape (Image owned and funded by the NZ taxpayer/NZ Government).
