Cyclone season isn't over as Cyclone Kelvin moves in

NZ 21/02/2018

As New Zealand moves into recovery mode following Cyclone Gita, another storm is moving towards the country.

NIWA says "remnant moisture" from Cyclone Kelvin, currently hovering over Australia, may move over the battered South Island early next week.

MetService meteorologist Lisa Murray says don't panic - Cyclone Kelvin will have basically died out by Friday, as it moves over Adelaide, but a bout of leftover rain will then move towards us.

"That low is then expected to track just south of New Zealand. It's not going to make landfall, but impact-wise, will bring strong gales and some rainfall.

"It will bring significant weather to West Coast… but it's a very different type of system to what we've just had.

"We're monitoring it really closely.
