It seems very clear to me from the Aussie BOM site that the humid airstream from Australia is what has caused the same conditions in NZ. I have recorded that air flow 3 times daily for the last 3 months.
The east coast of Australia has had a couple of weeks of high temperature and extreme high humidity from it and then it moved on over NZ

Hi Alimac,

You’re quite correct – the humidity over NZ is definitely from Aussie at this stage…then tomorrow in the upper NI Rene will bring more humidity from the tropics for us.

I have a friend in Sydney who says the humidity and rain there has just been awful this summer.

Yes all it looks as giving us a Horrible SW flow (with just partly cloudy weather perhaps 1 or 2 showers and a nonstop wind) and nothing interesting as its just to the east of us moving to the southeast.Not at all looking forward from about fridays weather.
