The next tropical cyclone was named last night by Fiji Met and is already over NZ waters but it remains basically stalled north of us for a few more days.
It’s a short lived storm that may be gone as fast as it formed, but the remnants will likely drift into the Tasman Sea and reach NZ’s West Coast next week some time. Another twin storm will spin off to the east up in the tropics and drop south of the Cook Islands as a bigger storm (but at sea).
Meanwhile – more rain is forecast for eastern Australia, especially NSW.

Hi Phil, you called the area to the north our back yard – how about calling it our tropical (or sub) back yard then you could go in all the directions with our pacific b/yard, our southern b/yard, and our ditch/tasman b/yard!!!
