Weather Video: Tropical cyclone on the way


A tropical storm has today formed near Vanuatu and reliable US and European computer models show this storm tracking directly towards New Zealand this Friday and weekend.

Some pick the storm hitting Northland while others show it brushing East Cape to our east.

Either way the forecasts show a very deep tropical low which has a moderate to high risk (based on today’s data) of bringing severe weather to New Zealand later this week.

As for the week ahead though – mostly dry and sunny thanks to a large high currently moving in.

Could get up to 120km/h based on current data - but mostly blustery and under gale force.  Worst of the winds around the centre of the low and we're still not 100% sure exactly where that centre will track yet.
