VIDEO: NZ: Autumn’s last week is messy, June kicks off windy

As Autumn comes to an end this week (on the meteorological calendar) the weather pattern around NZ will be classic Autumn with changeable weather, a mixture of high and low pressure and some windy westerlies to end the week with (and kick off June with).

High pressure (which has been stubborn all through May south of Australia) finally lifts anchor and sets sail to northern NZ – where it should lie this Saturday. But that placement, along with lows in the Southern Ocean, ramps up the nor’wester for large parts of the country this Friday and/or Saturday.

This week isn’t too active before that happens, but Wednesday does see a burst of gales and rain (and squally showers) for the North Island – including Auckland – with some localised power outage risks. We have your detailed forecast for this week and the coming first weekend of winter all from WeatherWatchTV on YouTube.
