VIDEO: ClimateWatch outlook for March 2021

La Nina continues to fade but we’re also now in the peak of the sea surface temperatures.

The tropics look very busy in the South Pacific/Australia region with several lows developing over the next 10 days.

One of them, in the Coral Sea area, looks likely to become a tropical cyclone. The Southern Ocean becomes stormier this month too, a bit like we saw in January with big lows which bring in a few southerlies for the New Zealand area.

Overall, nothing too extreme for the NZ and Australia regions in the month ahead – but certainly looking more like an Autumn weather pattern now with more low pressure.
