VIDEO: Stormy low for Sydney today will weaken as it moves to NZ by Friday

NZ has high pressure dominating while a small storm near Sydney will bring 120km/h gusts later today and heavy rain.

The low responsible for the stormy weather in coastal NSW will drift to NZ in a weaker status by Friday – bringing in wet weather to both main islands then a colder southerly behind it. Ahead of it will be milder than average weather, especially in the South Island which will be around 10 degrees above normal overnight tonight (but colder than normal around Gisborne at the other end of the nation).

**Programming Note: Our next new Extreme Global Weather Video (which we are producing while NZ is in Level 4 Lockdown) will be out by noon Wednesday NZST.

Hi Phil,
Great videos as per usual, and the world scene one is very interesting.
As for our weather here in Whangarei, it is another ditto day of breezy cold NE winds, grey cloudy skies, and cold showers. Not at all pleasant and I find it miserable. Not quite what you are forecasting.
Thanks to your WW team for all the great work they do.

Best regards,

Thanks for the local update Derek – I’m kicking myself as I noticed the small showers impacting eastern Northland and thought coupled with that easterly it’s probably quite a wintry day in the winterless north!! 🙂 Appreciate the local update from a much sunnier Auckland (sorry to rub it in!)
