Sunday’s national forecast

The large low from the Tasman Sea is weakening, finally, and will today drift into the North Island making ‘landfall’. Wind directions will be a bit ‘all over the place’ for some areas as the cyclonic airflow around the centre moves through. The centre of the low is unravelling and is falling apart.

Around the centre is rain/downpours. To the north are nor’westers, to the south sou’easters.
