Ex-TC Wati visits NZ

Ex-Tropical Cyclone Wati paid NZ a visit yesterday and crossed the North Island just north of Auckland around midday.

For the weather enthusiasts, here’s a high resolution “quikscat” image from 6:30am Tuesday morning showing satellite measured sea-surface winds around the low centre.

Ex-TC Wati

Not only was the low responsible for some heavy rain in the upper North Island, but it also delivered monster waves to the New South Wales coastline in Australia.
