 Extreme winter weather grips New Zealand

Both islands of New Zealand have been experiencing wild winter weather, with snow falling to sea level isolating towns and closing roads, flooding leading to evacuations, winds to 160km/h around Wellington and waves to 11m making Cook Strait live up to its reputation.

In the first real taste of winter, freezing weather and substantial snowfalls pushed north up the South Island on Tuesday in the wake of an active cold front. Air behind the front was exceptionally cold, not just at the surface but in the upper atmosphere as well, resulting in a deep upper cold pool with a temperature down to -38° at 500hPa (about 5.5km). This cold pool generated a deep low off the east coast of the North Island yesterday, prolonging the stream of low-level snow and cold air into the South Island today and bringing gales, heavy rain and snow down to as low as 200m as it crossed the North Island.

On Wednesday:
