One of the largest storms on the planet is making its way to New Zealand. It covers an area the size of Australia according to WeatherWatch.co.nz.

We've just been through the Darfield Quake and now we've got this monster on our doorstep!
Hopefully it won't contribute to more damage in the city of Christchurch where buildings remain damaged from our 7.1 quake last week.

Seems New Zealand is getting it all. Your source didn't have a satellite image - perhaps I can find it at Stormpulse. Be prepared and stay safe. I will check back!

Maybe the wind and rain will help clear away some of the debris?

Just trying to look on the bright side!

Hunker down and stay safe.

I couldn't find any satellite images but here are some maps of the storm.

New Zealand is to the SE of Australia (you'd be surprised how many don't know! ) covered by the mass of numbers

Storm the size of Australia? That's intense!

I hope it doesn't make it's way to New Zealand and cause some serious damage. The South Island has already had more than it can handle. I heard from a friend that the damages were around a billion dollars ($NZ).

With tribal and environmental issues sucking money out of the Goverment, I'd say another natural disaster would ruin the economy of New Zealand for sure.

Waiting on the Conspiracy extremists to come on here and say it is HAARP

I wouldn't worry too much OP, you Kiwi's are strong. You made it through a powerful earthquake with few(if any) deaths and you will make it through this storm. I'll keep track of this situation as it develops, hoping for the best!

It's gotta go to the bottlo and grab a carton of VB before it goes anywhere if it's ANYTHING like Australia!

And by time it gets there, no doubt it will suffer brewers droop and just chuck a leak in yer garden.




Oh weather.com has this animation, but I still cat work it out not being a meterologist... looks like there is a pretty large low pressure system coming up.. oO

Shoot, I have looked at MODIS, and weathercharts dot com, can't see this item bearing down on NZ!
Best to you all the same.

Typical of New Zealand to get more crap weather. This place might as well be England.

We have just had a warning to stay off the coast for the next 72 hours! I suspect this is sensible none the less if the wind changes I maybe grabbing my surf board.

Its been raining for about 6 weeks here in the lower North island, with the odd dry 4hrs.
We probably won't notice any change


120kmph pffffft we had a night and day of that a week ago.
Normal Spring winds , October is always like this.

Oh its September

Hmm, yes, considering it's "massive" the evening news isn't forecasting anything too drastic - we have nor'westers stronger than the gusts they mention..

It's a big area of low pressure. That's all. Because it's so big, isobars are't very tight so winds won't be that strong nor rain especially intense. It's the little storms that are worse.

Its certainly going to be huge one. Looking at the current mean sea level pressure analysis, its showing a central pressure of 971hPa, which is very low. If it were in tropical waters it would be classified as a cyclone.

As for the comment of it being as big as Australia...

Well, the satellite image begs to differ, lol.

For those on the coast beware of the rip currents - I know its tempting to get out there when the surf is up but it could be dangerous.
