In today’s extended video we track the ash cloud from the Tonga eruption as it moves over Queensland, Australia also Nouvelle Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji.
We also monitor ex-tropical Cyclone Cody that is missing much of NZ – but only just. Dangerous beach conditions will affect many eastern beaches. And we take a look at where NZ’s rain has gone.
With Cody failing to bring the wet stuff, North Islanders in particular are asking “Where’s the rain gone?”. Side note: WeatherWatch.co.nz and RuralWeather.co.nz have a news story this morning about rainfall for the rest of January (out to Feb 1).
