Stormy weather will set in across parts of eastern Australia – then reaches NZ next week as it falls apart.
For Australia’s eastern seaboard totals range from 100 to 200mm over the coming 5 days. When it reaches NZ it should bring about half that.
Gales will affect coastal Sydney for a time (Sunday night/Monday) and then a windier changes with gusts to gale moves into coastal Southland and Cook Strait next week – nothing major for NZ though.
We have your NZ/Aussie forecast out to next Wednesday.
*CLIMATEWATCH – Don’t forget our JULY ClimateWatch update is issued today too. Video will be on YouTube, with maps and stories (and video) available from both RuralWeather.co.nz and WeatherWatch.co.nz.

Appreciate your excellent work. One question can you please explain how the West Coast (SI) is likely to get around 70mls on Tuesday/Wednesday as per video. Yet on the climate update on you tube (which was excellent), looks like getting only 60-80mls till the 15th July. Once again appreciate your excellent work.

Hi Craig – slightly different maps. The IBM one we used showing 70mm is more detailed and has better data in it. The longer range one is a more generic view and misses some of the peaks in the mountains. Your local WeatherWatch forecast will likely have the more accurate local rainfall for your specific area 🙂
Thanks for the support!
