Keeping an eye on the tropics

Keeping an eye on the tropics


A large, slow-moving anticyclone should bring mostly fine, settled weather to much of New Zealand for the next few days. However, all eyes are on the tropics which is showing signs of becoming a hive of activity.

MetService Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented,"The passing anticyclone should bring a spell of dry weather for the country but by the end of the week the weather could take a turn for the worse as a tropical weather system draws nearer to the country."

This tropical weather system could have an impact on the weather across parts of New Zealand by the end of the week and into the weekend, but it is still too early to pin down the exact weather details given the potential for change in the situation.

Tropical cyclone 'Hadi' in the Coral Sea is expected to stay in the tropics for the time being. A new tropical low near Vanuatu is likely to become a tropical cyclone in the next day or so before taking a path leading out of the tropics. Once this new system moves out of the tropics,it could bring a spell of wet and windy weather especially to parts of northern New Zealand by the weekend, but details will be firmed up in the coming days.

In the meantime you can keep an eye on the tropics with Fiji met service www.met.gov.fj as well as the Pacific Outlook on MetService TV and the Severe Weather Outlook from MetService (http://www.metservice. com/warnings/severe-weather-outlook).
