Big Storm In New Zealand tomorrow

Update : there is another big storm coming

Just letting everyone know there is a big storm again hitting New Zealand bringing predicted gusts up to 60 knots at NZAA.

Predicted wind gusts tomorrow just before it is predicted to hit nz (storm is tracking east) winds stronger when it hits.

On another note hope everyone else from New Zealand stays safe especially @KiwisFlying @Air_New_Zealand08 you guys are in main path of storm.


Ah, this brings back memories of flying in Irma pre-global, flying around South Florida watching Laura down in the keys while I was stuck in the boundaries. Will be sure to fly in New Zealand tomorrow!


Should be great for patterns, that is alot of XP that you could make. Thank you for sharing Matthew!



Wowza! Good luck to anyone flying there!

Looks like we know what we’ll be doing tomorrow evening. 😂

So we’ve got some updated information on the storm

So it’s been classified as a tropical storm, but has the wind speed of a Cat 1 Hurricane. Air New Zealand has canceled flights out of Wellington for tomorrow. Multiple Severe weather warnings are in place, and mandatory evacuations are already in progress in low lying areas on the West coast of the south island.

Yes im a weather geek, yes i enjoy this.

I’d be there too. I’m pretty much hooked on tight patterns now. Back to Wellington it is.
