Big southerly on the way out – Tuesday’s Weather Video

The large, cold southerly airflow which sits over the country has brought some fairly unsettled, cold and wet weather to parts of the country – with hail and sleet in parts of the North Island on Tuesday morning.

The low pressure system which has hung around since the end of last week will have one final surge, followed by much clearer and more settled weather to start the first official day of winter.

Check out the rest of the week’s weather outlook with Philip Duncan, below.

I have been following the data provided by metservice. Their rain data show that Auckland has recieved rain on every single day of the past 17 days. Moreover, there has been rain in 24 days this month (including today). Though the total rainfall is only   145.8mm compared to the average of 125mm. Still, This sounds extraordinary! I am wondering if you know what is the longest streak of consecutive days of precipitation for Auckland( sounds very trivial I know!). There is more rain coming tomorrow and after tomorrow as well!! What a wet month May has been!

Thanks for the updates 🙂
