Weather Situation
A complex low pressure system over the central Tasman Sea is bringing windy
conditions and continuous showers and thunderstorms over the region. This low
will move slowly east across the central Tasman Sea during Wednesday and
Thursday, maintaining fresh to strong southwesterly winds and showery
conditions, but the winds will gradually ease during the outlook period as the
low tracks further east and a ridge of high pressure begins to extend across the
central Tasman Sea by Saturday. Conditions will accordingly become more settled
at the island towards the end of the outlook period.
