VIDEO: Cold fronts are coming – but large dry areas too

Cold fronts bringing some alpine snow and sea level rain and showers are in the forecast for parts of NZ this week and next – but many large areas will also be dry and sunny as wind flows move around high and low pressure zones. This week highlights just what Autumn (and spring) can be all about – chaotic and messy weather patterns.

\We’ve had northerlies, easterlies, westerlies and southerlies this week around NZ and more to come over the next several days. Many who had heaters, fires and heatpumps going on Tuesday may today have doors and windows open. However a huge block of high pressure remains stubbornly stuck south of Australia – bringing severely dry weather into the south and south east of their nation. These highs are limiting rain events into NZ and are also encouraging many of the cold fronts and southerlies we’re getting.

We have your forecast for the rest of this week, weekend and the start of next week too.
