VIDEO: A cool down for NZ + 2 Tropical Cyclones in the South Pacific

The high temperatures this week across NZ will take a bit of a break over the coming days as a couple of cold fronts move in – ahead of the next two high pressure zones.  

These highs promise more hot, dry, summer weather – but as they move in the anticyclone airflow draws up a southerly from the Southern Ocean area – and this will help ease the heat and humidity. But it also brings in colder air for the lower South Island with another dusting of snow on the ranges Friday or Saturday. 

Next week sees another big high moving in – and it should cover the entire country by Tuesday and Wednesday.

Up in the tropics – at the time we recorded this on Thursday morning in NZ – there were TWO named Tropical Cyclones, both Category 1. TC Nat and TC Osai. Neither pose a threat to NZ or a direct threat to any major centres, but those in Tahiti and the Cook Islands should be monitoring conditions closely today and next few days.
