Ex-cyclone June passed Norfolk Island this morning with winds over 100km/h and torrential rain.
The low is gradually weakening but is already sending rain across the upper North Island. We have a large calm area in the centre of the low, but around it are gale to severe gales.
These strong winds are expected to move into Auckland and other northern areas during Tuesday as the low heads south and the gale sou'westers move in behind it for a time.
The rest of the week looks unsettled with sou'west winds blowing across many areas ahead of a high this coming weekend...but for Auckland Anniversary Monday there may be some incoming rainclouds once again.
