Wet and windy weather eases then quieter

Wet and windy weather eases then quieter

The active sub-tropical low (remnants of cyclone June) will spread spells of rain and gales across many parts of the country over the next 12-24 hours before gradually easing away to the east by midweek.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented."The sub-tropical low will bring quite a spell of wet and windy weather across much of the northern half of the country but slightly drier weather will make a return as the weather systems clears away during early Wednesday"

The leading edge of and persistent rain will spread down as far as central New Zealand by early Tuesday, this will then be followed by strong southwesterly gales that will usher in behind the low as it eases across the country during the second half of Tuesday. These could be strong to severe gales across exposed western parts of Northland and Auckland.

Some slightly quieter weather will spread across northern areas on Wednesday as the remnant low eases away to the east but a few showers may still linger in places. A swift westerly flow will usher in a new trough from the west during Thursday followed by more settled weather to end the week.
