Another bout of severe weather on the way

From the MetService:

“Make the most of Tuesday and Wednesday” advised MetService meteorologist Angus Hines, “since another bout of severe weather is likely at the end of the week.”
A brief ridge of high pressure will ensure a few calm days for many people this week before the next round of weather hits.

A front sitting across central New Zealand will slide north tonight, and the impacts associated with it will be confined to the upper half of the North Island on Tuesday, where rain is expected. For everyone else, a short-lived ridge of high pressure will ensure that much of Tuesday and Wednesday are clear, crisp winter days – ideal to get outside during the second week of school holidays.

Strong northerlies will be the first sign of things changing, as they spread over the country from Wednesday evening, with rain following shortly after. Over the following few days it looks likely that all the densely populated centres will get some rain. The Bay of Plenty region, which is exposed to weather coming in from the north, is an area that may see larger accumulations of rainfall by the end of the week.

“It’s not only rain that will be grabbing the headlines,” commented Mr Hines, “gale force winds are forecast to affect a lot of the North Island, and a southerly change pushing onto the lower South Island overnight Thursday is likely to lower temperatures and bring further snow to some inland areas.” While the snow is not expected to be as low or as extensive as last week, it could still significantly impact transport around the South Island.

As we track this weather system approaching, MetService meteorologists will be issuing and updating Severe Weather Warnings, Watches, and Road Snow Warnings. There is currently some uncertainty around the exact timing and intensity of the approaching system, so MetService encourages everyone to keep up to date with the latest forecast, especially if planning outdoor pursuits or long trips on the road.

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My

    to share it with someone!

  7. I was wondering if you ever considered changing
    the structure of your website? Its very well
    written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
