Changing weather – The Big Picture on Friday

On Friday we have the remnants of cyclone Victor lying southeast of New Zealand in the Pacific Ocean, while a high pressure system lies south of the country.

Over New Zealand there is a slack pressure gradient, meaning not much will happen weather-wise, other than some cloud, sun and a few isolated showers here and there.

For the most part, the east of the South Island is fairly cloudy with south to southeasterly winds, while there are sunny areas in the west.

Over the North Island we have periods of cloud and some brief sun at times in the east, while the lower part of the North Island is mostly sunny.
From Northland down through to the Waikato, the Central North Island and the Bay Of Plenty sees cloud build in the afternoon with isolated showers moving in.
Those showers could become heavy for some, with the risk of a thunderstorm or two – then clearing later in the evening.
