VIDEO: Double trouble in the tropics, southerly for NZ this weekend

Severe Cyclone Judy will slowly move away from Vanuatu today but yet another tropical cyclone has developed behind it.

Our video was made shortly before the Fiji Met Service named the second storm “KEVIN”.

For Vanuatu it means a repeat performance with another damaging storm coming in the days ahead.

For New Zealand it means no real change to our weather, with both of these tropical cyclones expected to remain well north of NZ, as we exclusively first reported last week. They may be just close enough to increase rips, currents and waves in some north eastern beaches of the North Island.

High pressure from Australia will help keep these storms north of NZ – this high pressure will also encourage a colder southerly into Southland and Otago this weekend with daytime highs tumbling about 10 degrees on where they are today and Friday.

This southerly then heads up into the North Island but looks to only deliver 5 to 15mm for flood hit Hawke’s Bay. We take a look at your forecast to Tuesday.
