Video: Potential NZ rain warnings, ash update, Chch weather

Philip Duncan and NZHerald.co.nz bring you the latest on all the happenings in the skies over New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere.

It’s a longer than usual video covering a number of topics.

Firstly, we look at Christchurch and the incoming cold change later today.  We then look at the weekend’s big rain maker coming in from the Tasman Sea and show that the rain will be mostly light for Christchurch, but Sunday and Monday may be fairly wet and cold.  Not good news at all.

We look at the rest of New Zealand too and point out which regions are likely to see rain warnings (northern and western regions of both islands, in particular Northland, Coromandel, Bay of Plenty, East Cape, Nelson and maybe Mt Taranaki).  We track the low and point out the squash zone that may alo produce gales.

And finally we take another look at the ash cloud from space and track where it currently lies.

I have noticed wind from the NW as well as SW in New Lynn. Made evident by rain splatters on NW windows.
This morning the clouds looked like twilight clouds over Avondale with a smooth yellow base.

Possibly a localised swirling of the wind Zelda, definitely have a sou’wester blowing over the majority of the city today.  Nor’easter by this time tomorrow though!
