Autumn starts strongly
Autumn weather is typical a wet season and three days in it’s already living up to its name. A green tinge is starting to appear across Waikato and many other drought affected areas right over the nation, however our head weather analyst Philip Duncan say plenty more rain is needed. “The weekends rain event which affected almost every dry region in New Zealand is not big enough on its own to end any droughts – however a deep low a week ago, another low this past weekend, and a definite weakening in the high pressure systems over New Zealand are all giving a strong lending hand. It’s highly likely we’ll see more sub-tropical lows this month”.
Afternoon showers are expected across many North Island regions today as a growing high in the south pushes a low northwards to lie north east of New Zealand. “More rain is expected in Northland today but dry weather will return to the South Island for the next few days”.
