VIDEO: Cyclone Yasa forms near Fiji & Vanuatu as high pressure expands over NZ

A huge high is with NZ this week but Tropical Cyclone Yasa was named overnight near Fiji and Vanuatu and it will remain here at sea for a numbers of days, growing in intensity but not moving too far.

This cyclone poses a threat to both Vanuatu and Fiji at this time and also poses some threat to New Zealand in about a week.

For now, the focus is mostly on Vanuatu and Fiji. At the same time another storm has formed near Tonga and the Cook Islands. This storm may also become a tropical cyclone but should be shorter lived.

We have the latest details on the South Pacific tropical storms, eastern Aussie’s wet weather and NZ’s big high – and how long that will last.
