Weather Video: Why do we have showers when a big high is here?

Many thought today would be perfectly sunny and dry but a high pressure system in August is never that simple and across the North Island we have seen a few lingering showers. We explain why they are there and where they move to over the rest of the working week as high pressure really sets in.

By Friday a northerly flow is spreading across New Zealand and by Saturday we’re back to sub-tropical northerlies from Northland to Southland, West Coast to East Cape.

Pollen levels are also high in many areas at the moment – if you’re sneezing, coughing or have red eyes welcome allergy season (and please vote in our Pollen Poll on the WeatherWatch homepage this week!)
