  1. New Zealand weather is.... weird.

    Firstly, the cyclones turn backwards (as compared with the UK, anyhow)

    Secondly, there's almost always an area of high pressure trying to cross the tasman sea from Australia. Sometimes it's strong enough, or sometimes there's a weakness in it... and a subsequent low.

    Thirdly, ALL the surface charts are positively full of fronts - sometimes because that Aussie high wasn't strong enough, or sometimes just because te weather in the Antarctic exists.

    Fourthly, and finally, Australia is two thousand miles away. NZ is a couple of islands smack bang in the middle of the ocean.

    I swear, the Met Office must send all its forecasters down here to train. If they don't, they're missing a trick!

      Not to mention that you need to remember that the sun moves east - north - west. Always took me a minute to remember if working out directions etc.
