Weather Video: Tropical low now on the horizon

As the spring-like pattern gradually eases over many parts of New Zealand, allowing for hotter, sunnier, weather to move into the South Island, all eyes are shifting to the tropics where long range models have been picking for some time now a tropical low.

This low may well grow into a tropical storm or cyclone before it reaches New Zealand, but at this stage it may weaken again before reaching our shores.

Either way, Monday and Tuesday are days to watch next week in the upper North Island.

Meanwhile the South Island has hot and sunny weather for the next 24 to 36 hours before the next cold southerly arrives there over late Thursday and Friday.

We also take a look at the forecast for the Big Day Out in Auckland this Friday.

Keep up the great work guys. Always like your updates.  Just out of curiosity do you see a change for The Naki. Our weather has been chaotic here including a new dusting of snow on the mountain.

Have a look at our forecasts for Palmerston North, while not the Naki it’s close enough to give you an idea what the weather will be like coming up.

Thanks for the words, much appreciated!
