Situation
A northerly flow persists over New Zealand between a slow moving high to the east and a trough in the Tasman Sea. The trough moves over the country later today and into Tuesday, while a deepening low approaching from the southwest spreads a front onto southern New Zealand late Tuesday. The front moves north across the rest of the country on Wednesday followed by a southwest flow, while the low sweeps to south of New Zealand. Another front approaches the far south late Thursday, then advances north to central New Zealand on Friday, as the associated low approaches the lower South Island.
