Weather Headlines for Tuesday – No decent rain from Cody, a cold front then settled

Cody misses NZ and so does the rain

The narrow hit-and-miss nature of tropical lows is what often describes as a “wild card” for those who need rain in summer. A tropical low can bring one or two month’s worth of rain in just a day or two. But when these storms miss us – as Cyclone Cody has mostly done – then we’re left looking at the odd shower and weak cold front as the only rain generators. More details at the link below:

Cold front due on Wednesday

A cold front is still forecast to move in tomorrow hitting the lower South Island at first, not really making inroads into the upper South Island till evening. The North Island sees this refreshing change move through on Thursday although just the east coast sees the bulk of the shower activity.

Looking rather settled as we head into the end of the month

The weather from the 21st January is looking rather settled thanks to plenty of high pressure hanging around. A very weak southerly quarter flick moving through on the 23rd may bring some cloud and a light shower or two to eastern regions but that is mostly it. The last few days of the month in long range models shows the possibility of some tropical activity in the far north, more on that at the link below:
