Weather Video: Low pressure just west of NZ could linger for a week

Filed in:

We have a belt of high pressure crossing parts of New Zealand this week but a large low in eastern Tasman Sea may well dominate New Zealand’s weather for several days.

The forecast doesn’t look extreme but there’s a narrow area of patchy rain, showers and drizzle expected to form over the country this week between this low and nearby high pressure.

This could leave both islands exposed to having this cloudy sometimes wet weather moving in - although the low isn’t very deep and energetic, so some areas may only have a bit of drizzle. This set up remains until the coming weekend.
