New Zealand is transitioning away from one large low pressure to another – but we do have some sunny, warm, weather in between.
Already for Tuesday the sun is out and the winds are down in many regions that have been knocked around over the past few days.
Wednesday is the transition day between Mondayâ€™s low and the next one arriving on Thursday. Wednesday should be fairly sunny and mild.
Thursday and Friday both see another low crossing the country – mostly the North Island. Itâ€™s not as deep or aggressive as the one we just had – but yes, it does mean a bit more rain.
The weekend is looking fairly calm, considering itâ€™s the start of true spring, but we still expect showers and the odd heavy downpour in western regions of both islands.
We also take a look at Hurricane Maria, now an â€œextremely dangerousâ€ category 5 hurricane and is heading towards Puerto Rico and many other Caribbean island nations. A very serious situation again unfolding. (please note Maria was upgraded from 4 to 5 just minutes after we published this).
