Sweltering temperatures set to sweep NZ this week

Kiwis across the country should be bracing for sweltering temperatures as a string of hot days sweep the nation.

Weather forecasters say the coming week will bring temperatures in the 30's°C (80's°F) and a slew of fire bans.

Northland's dry conditions are expected to be exacerbated, with Whangarei forecast to reach 29°C (84.2°F) today and Kaitaia just behind on 28°C (82.4°F).

Due to hot air flowing around high pressure, temperatures will be higher than normal, Weather Watch says. It will also feel a lot warmer during the daytime.

There's also a chance a drought will increase as a result of warm temperatures and rain trends.

But a lot of New Zealand will feel the heat this week, with temperatures expected to reach the early 30's°C (80's°F) in some parts of the country, a Met Service forecaster told Newshub.

"Overall, tomorrow's probably going to be hotter, where I'm expecting 33°C (91.4°F) in Blenheim, and 32°C (89.6°F) in Christchurch. Much of the North Island getting around 30°C (86.0°F) as well," Andre James says.

The heat wave comes with a number of warnings, including a total fire ban across the hell hole that is the Auckland region and north Waikato starting from January 28th at 8:00am. Fire and Emergency NZ has also banned all fires in Canterbury.

There will be some relief for western parts of the country with showers forecast today, but it should remain dry elsewhere.

Heatwave weather: NZ boils as sea temperatures surge over 20C
Scott Palmer
1 hour ago

New Zealand is burning on land and boiling at sea as a brutal Australian heatwave sinks its red claws into the country.

A scorching summer blast has seen the mercury go over 35C around Aotearoa - with fears this could rise to over 40C in parts of eastern New Zealand.

But there's no respite or relief to be found in the cool ocean, as sea temperatures surge to over 20C around the North Island.

NIWA meteorologist Ben Noll warns it's going to be hot.
"It took a while, but sea temperatures around New Zealand have really warmed up!" NIWA says on Facebook.

"If you're headed to the beach this weekend, 20C+ is common around the North Island.

"Sunday will be the hotter of the two weekend days, so make the most of the heart of summer if you can!"

And NIWA warns the hot sea temperatures in the Pacific could lead to more destructive weather patterns in the second half of February.

Due north of New Zealand, a persistent patch of warmer-than-average ocean temperatures could send strong low-pressure systems down towards us.

"Cool seas that were once present here north of Australia have been replaced - replaced by warmer seas. And that means there's going to be a change overall in what's driving our climate," NIWA meteorologist Ben Noll says on Facebook.

"What that creates is a favourable environment for lift and rising motion in the atmosphere. And when you have that, you have rain and thunderstorms.

"So that creates an environment that's positive towards the formation or generation of tropical weather systems like tropical cyclones."

Tail end of Cyclone Uesi to bring heavy rain, gales to New Zealand
Brittney Deguara·13:29, February 12th, 2020

Met Service
New Zealand is in for stormy weather at the weekend, Met Service says.

The remnants of Tropical Cyclone Uesi will hit New Zealand's South Island over the weekend.

"A lot of the models have all lined up quite nicely to show it approaching Fiordland, Westland coast on Sunday," Met Service meteorologist Rob Kerr said. Southland was also expected to be affected.

The eye of the storm wasn't likely to make landfall and the cyclone was forecast to be downgraded to a low by Friday. However, there would still be significant weather events as a result. Kerr predicted heavy rain and gale force winds, potentially exceeding 100kmh, to hit the regions.

"By the time it gets here it won't be a tropical cyclone anymore, but it will ... still be felt quite significantly."

Forecasters were confident a rain band associated with the cyclone was going to "hit" Sunday through to Monday, and potentially into Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the slow-moving system wasn't expected to reach New Zealand and there was a lot of uncertainty relating to its path. But as it passed over New Caledonia and gathered some speed, the models recalculated its trajectory.

"The models have made a big jump from yesterday to today," Kerr said. "A lot of that has to do with the fact that it's now ... clear of New Caledonia and any uncertainty ... has been removed."

The impact of the system wouldn't be known until later in the week. Kerr said the team of forecasters would be keeping an eye on the models going forward, and explained they may still "jump around a little bit more".

On Wednesday morning, the cyclone was located around 400km west of Noumea, New Caledonia. It would continue to move southwest over the next couple of days and would transition into a subtropical low off Australia's east coast. It was expected to be reclassified as a low on Friday, Met Service said.
