Video: Ex-cyclone remnants to track near NZ + new typhoon threat for Japan

The remnants of an out of season, short lived, early tropical cyclone have formed into a new low and will brush past northern New Zealand over the next two days. Latest data suggests it’s not a storm and that 95% of it will remain offshore, but it may bring in some cloud, swells and showers to Northland and perhaps East Cape area. In fact there may be a burst of heavy rain brushing a part of Northland.

The general trend around New Zealand is that of a drier one - in fact it appears November’s warmth and dryness has already arrived. But we’re not out of the wintry woods just yet - a cold nationwide southerly looks likely for mid to late next week.

We also head back to Japan where their third major typhoon in a matter of weeks is on the way for later this week.
