• A ‘vigorous subtropical jet stream’ expected across New Zealand on Friday bringing lousy weather.
  • Despite the low pressure system, the temperatures aren’t expected to drop.
  • Nowhere around the country will be spared from the rain.

This particular one is mixed with a subtropical and polar jet stream.

Metrologists explained that two different jet streams are going to meet up in the Tasman Sea later in the week and “fuel the development of a pretty strong low pressure system”, bringing over the bad weather.

“What’s going to happen is this jet stream fueled area of low pressure is going to get stuck in the mud a bit to the west of New Zealand and its going to be blocked by a high pressure system to the east of the country. Kind of like an atmospheric stop sign,“ he said.
