Sou'wester ushers in a few showers

Sou'wester ushers in a few showers

The weather over New Zealand is expected to remain largely settled again this week. However it should feel perhaps slightly autumnal in eastern places, as a southwest flow brings in slightly cooler air.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented,"A few weak fronts brushing past the country over the next few days will bring a little, but not a lot, of rain."

"The long-wave ridge over the Tasman Sea is the driving force behind the continued settled weather," Corbett went on to say. "It has shifted a little westward over the last few days, which is one of the reasons why New Zealand is now in a southwesterly flow. However, we're expecting the anticyclone over the Tasman Sea to build back across the country later this week."

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
