VIDEO: Giant low to bring warm wind and rain then another polar blast

We’re in a warming up phase for the next few days but a very large low will form this weekend into a storm and by early next week it will lie over the Southern Ocean and likely sends another polar blast our way.

It’s not 100% locked in but the modelling has been fairly consistent for the past few days. We should be able to lock things in by Thursday.

The low may not be so cold and stormy for northern NZ next week, but those in the south face another winter blast with sea level snow again possible in Southland, Fiordland and maybe Otago for a time but there will still be large, sunny, dry areas too

Thanks for the update guys, but I am hopeful and looking forward to normal winter spell in Fiordland but hope the cold will remain bearable and the temps will not go below as compared to the last time. Thanks again.
