An Autumnal Change

MetService News Release

09 Apr 2012


An Autumnal Change

An active frontal system will slide north across New Zealand over the next couple of days, bringing a spell of wet weather especially, across western parts of New Zealand from Westland to Taranaki.

Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented, "the active weather system will bring a bout of heavy rain in places, along with the risk of some thunderstorms over northwestern areas of the North Island."

This weather system will depart the North Island during Thursday,followed by a noticeably cooler southwest change. Corbett went on the say," the cooler air that will spread over New Zealand in the wake of this weather system will certainly have a taste of Autumn."

The air could even be cold enough for some snow on the higher ground across the South Island.

The air will start to warm again as we head towards the weekend, as a large anticyclone builds to bring dry and settled weather.
