New Zealand narrowly missed a direct hit by what was essentially a winter cyclone says WeatherWatch.co.nz. The storm centre only nicked Stewart Island. Head weather analyst Philip Duncan says the rough weather this week comes in two parts. He says the first part was the centre of the storm.. "This is where those hurricane force winds lie, wrapped tightly around the centre as you would normally see in a tropical cyclone".
