VIDEO: High pressure, warmer air, coming for NZ as cyclone heads to QLD

High pressure is heading to New Zealand this Friday bringing a settled end to the week – while Queensland in Australia faces a likely a tropical cyclone later this weekend or early next week.

For NZers a shift to more westerlies in the week ahead will be good news for those in the eastern North Island sick of the rain. It should mean both a lift in drier weather and warmer weather. There will also be some parts of NZ that may well hit 30 degrees this Saturday as a pulse of hot air comes out of Australia, before NZ’s next cold front.

Meanwhile Australia is drying back out again – except Queensland now faces a direct Tropical Cyclone.

*Programming Notes:

– Our next Pacific Islands 7 Day forecast is out today (and every Tuesday) – this video will also cover the future tracking of this cyclone in more detail.

– We will produce a special Cyclone update on Wednesday

Thank you for such a clear and definitive forecast. I find the dialogue of a certain party on TV very difficult to follow. That’s the best l’ve seen since Jim Hicky. 😎👍👏 Kia ora
