Sunday Newsfeed: Low pressure areas increase offshore near northern NZ in days ahead

A light easterly kicks in to the north of the North Island on Sunday as high pressure moves south east of the country. Low pressure zones develop around the north in the days ahead, mostly offshore but may brush northern NZ.

Some wet weather lingers around the West Coast and maybe a few other coastal parts of NZ in more isolated ways.

On Monday a north easterly flow develops, helping lift temperatures a little more in southern NZ. Low pressure grows over the Tasman Sea on Monday.

Most of NZ leans drier than average in the week ahead. It’s possible some isolated parts of the upper North Island may be wetter.

Was planning to go out fishing in my aluminium dinghy today based on the beautiful weather forecast last night (Sunday 19th May)…expecting clear blue skies and light SE breeze.
Horrible glum day with rain! Winds enough to cause a tinnie big trouble!!! What’s happening to the accuracy of our forecasting?
