AFTERNOON CONVECTION IN THE NORTH ISLAND

Parts of the North Island are currently experiencing what is called 'afternoon convection'. This is shown in the visible satellite picture and radar image shown below. The lines of cloud you can see are called 'convergence lines'. While most people are basking in sunshine, these convergence lines are bringing localised heavy showers to an unlucky few,...

A mix of sun and rain

While much of the country has enjoyed some dry, sunny weather lately, a couple of fronts look set to top up the water-tanks this week. The image below shows model daily rainfall accumulations, showing some decent rainfall in the west on Wednesday into Thursday as the first front moves north. Another front follows behind this on Saturday, although it is much faster moving...

CONVERGENCE
As we head into the warmer months wind convergence becomes more common and this can have greater consequences. As the land heats up the air above it rises. Cooler air over the sea moves inland to fill this void, and sometimes these sea breezes can push up against existing winds forming a line of convergence. In summertime the sun adds more heat to the earth's surface, which...

MONDAY WEATHER

A fine, sunny day is expected over much of the South Island today.

Further north, over the North Island, showers are expected to form, mostly during this afternoon and evening. These showers will be formed by sea breezes, convergence and afternoon convection, with thunderstorms likely for inland Bay of Plenty, Taupo, Taihape and the ranges of Gisborne and Hawkes Bay. How does...

SUMMER WEATHER ON MONDAY

Many people associate Summer weather with long sunny days, which is what most people in the South Island can expect on Monday, after some morning cloud and patchy drizzle clears up.

However, there is another side to Summer weather, which the North Island will be experiencing tomorrow - sea breezes, convergence, and afternoon convection. This means that showers will...

MONDAY'S THUNDERSTORM OUTLOOK

Tomorrow is looking like a classic example of what we call 'Afternoon convection' over the North Island.

What is afternoon convection? It can happen any time of year, but is more common during Summer. As the land heats up during the day, it causes onshore 'sea breezes' to form. These sea breezes can cause 'wind convergences'. For example, southwesterly sea...

Upper North Island residence may see some...

Surfs not up

Not a lot of surfable waves about tomorrow, with smallish surf up both sides of the country, and predominately offshore winds. However, south of the Dunedin Peninsula looks the spot in the morning with a bit of an offshore breeze.

Overnight temperatures

A blanket of low cloud has kept much of the country on the warm side during the night, with overnight lows about average for this time of the year. However, a couple of low single figures in Masterton and Invercargill, and this shows where skies were clear and winds were light. Masterton also recorded a grass minimum temperature ( taken just above grass level) of minus...

Here's a great little story for you. After getting a steer from us on how our midday balloon releases from Whenuapai were tracking, last Wednesday Auckland's Forrest Hill School launched 'SpaceTeddy' into the stratosphere to report back on what he found there (through images and video). He got to 28.5km above the earth's surface and, as you can see, he had a great view! Apparently it took 4...

No surprises here - it was the wettest November on record for Wellington (based on Kelburn data that began in 1928), and the third wettest November on record for Dunedin (using Musselburgh data since 1918).

Sunshine for the first day of summer

After a classic changeable spring, the first day of summer sees sun and settled conditions for many. Check to find out how long it will last. ^TA
Don’t put away those winter sheets yet.

Clearing skies and light winds after the today’s cold front brings the chance of a light frost to inland parts of the lower South Island as overnight temperatures drop into the low single figures. If you’re worried about vulnerable plants then cover them, especially if you’re in susceptible spots. However, as ground temperatures are high this time of...
