VIDEO: Severe weather for upper North Island Sunday PM & Monday

Recorded Friday — It’s a busy video as we track quite a few systems – the main feature being a new storm that will briefly form this weekend in the sub-tropics with the leftovers from Lola.

The storm will move into the upper North Island late Sunday and across Monday – but has limited energy and is not a repeat of anything like Cyclone Gabrielle.

In saying that, there will likely be a few gale and heavy rain warnings issued for regions around the North Island over the coming days.  

We break it down for you and which areas are at most risk for severe weather.

A bit windy and wet – nothing too major. It will be worst in eastern Waikato (Te Aroha and along the western Kaimais).

Thank god we are in El Nino. I think this could be quite the storm. This looks exactly like the weather events we had over the last 18 months. I think it could be a bit rough around the Te Aroha region.

Hi Paul, agree El Nino’s extra high pressure will ‘smother’ this low. The unusual warmer than average sea conditions in parts of the Tasman and tropical Pacific sure make this El Nino a very complicated one! Looks very windy in Te Aroha tonight and Monday with damaging gusts.
