More unsettled from early next week

April 12, 2013

Over the weekend, a slow-moving front is expected to bring some rain to central and southern parts of the North Island but the weather will turn decidedly unsettled over much of the country from early next week.

Media and Communications Meteorologist Daniel Corbett commented, “An approaching sub-tropical low and favourable upper level dynamics will combine to bring a wet and windy new week”.

The sub-tropical low, with its abundant supply of moisture, will provide a good opportunity for rain over much of New Zealand. Where the greatest amount of rain is likely to fall will depend on how this actual system evolves, but most of us will be in line for some useful rain during next week.

In addition, the tight pressure gradient associated with this low will make for windy conditions in a number of places.

After this system departs by midweek, another trough will move in to bring another spell of unsettled weather later in the week.
