Sub-tropical winds and nor’westers will see many places bouncing back to warmer than average after a stormy, cold, first half of this week.
Friday and Saturday look mild in a number of regions. However the Southern Ocean is especially stormy right now, more like mid-winter than Autumn.
It’s encouraging typical autumn like westerlies, but also frequent southerlies.
There are at least 3 significant storms in the Southern Ocean in the next 10 days alone – but also more high pressure to NZ’s north keeping some protection over northern regions.
