Tuesday Newsfeed: Colder, wetter in the east – drier in the west

The large low might be in the Tasman Sea to our west but the bulk of the wet weather for Tuesday is along the eastern side of NZ and is thanks to HIGH pressure instead! The high will interact with the low to create a cold easterly flow into eastern NZ and due to the nearby low this will bring some rain and showers (and some South Island mountain snow in the east).

Elsewhere many regions are dry or mostly dry today.

Coldest air is in the eastern and inland parts of the South Island, mildest in the north and west of NZ.

Our latest video explains the complicated set up this week – and why low pressure may linger all this week, weekend and into next week too.
