VIDEO: Two tropical cyclones for NZ to monitor


Severe Tropical Cyclone Uesi is today moving into New Caledonia as forecasters eye up another area north east of Fiji which will likely see an ever larger cyclone develop later this week.

Uesi will track into the Tasman Sea in the days ahead and then flirt with Aussie’s eastern coastline.

It may then move into the western side of the lower South Island early to mid next week. Meanwhile later next week the second tropical cyclone will likely be crossing Tonga and tracking somewhat towards NZ.

High pressure will be dominating the North Island - pushing back at both these storms and keeping mostly dry weather in placethere for the next week or two.
