FORECAST DISCUSSION
SUNDAY 17th NOVEMBER 2019 (AM SHIFT)


TODAY:

The high pressure system centred Northeast of New Zealand is now taking control of our weather. This weather feature is maintaining moderate Easterly wind flow over the group. Stable conditions expected to persist for today as there is no significant event over or near the forecast zone, drier upper levels of the atmosphere supports this situation. Nonetheless, Towering cumulus may develop over highlands with some showery activities, fine elsewhere.


MONDAY TOWARDS SATURDAY:

The aforementioned high pressure system is predicted to remain dominant in the next few days while moving Eastward. Similar conditions as today expected. By Tuesday a low may develop near Vanuatu, a trough extending from it may lie South of the Islands with showery activities. Despite the position of the trough, Winds may tend Northeast providing warm and moist air mass over the group. Therefore, expect a change in the weather by Tuesday evening.

MARINE OBSERVATION & OUTLOOK:

The latest data show minimal wave heights raining from 1.5-2 metres and will remain so for the rest of the outlook period.


ADVISORIES & WARNINGS:
