Moist sou’easters finally drying out

A showery south east wind flow across the North Island is today finally drying out after several days of the wind with showers and rain affecting many eastern areas.

For a time on Sunday the showers had enough energy to make it west over some of the main ranges, including affecting a few parts of Auckland and Waikato last night.

Today the wind flow is moving showers into eastern and northern Northland while smaller showers continue to dot Gisborne and Hawkes Bay.

This wind flow will ease today before a colder southerly arrives on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of a windy weekend of westerlies.  Welcome to Spring 2013!

Thank goodness for those tell all headlines SE dying out. I feel better just reading that. In our little patch we’ve had blasting downslope winds with this one or big isolated S gusts. Very minor rain made it to this side this morrning. I am glad to see the back of that. We are such a magnet fot the SE which is a pain in an unforecast area. Big gusts appear suddenly but altocumulus gives a short warning. Big pressure drops but not the dry air of 2012. This year rocks!
