High pressure dominates New Zealand for the next few days but the tropics are not settling down yet with some models showing another tropical low developing this Sunday and drifting towards northern New Zealand next week.
The good news is that the data currently supports this sub-tropical rain maker sliding past East Cape of the North Island, but following on from two ex-cyclones North Islanders are especially concerned about additional rain.
Luckily the high IS locked in and we do expected significant dry, draining, weather over the next four or five days. However early next week we may again be monitoring our next rain maker from the north.
We also have cooler weather, especially mornings, for the next few days – but Thursday sees a southerly that will also see a few places cooler during the day, we have the details on which places will be most exposed to the cooler southerly flow.
